Case Study

Andrew Short


Without studying at Sunderland I would never have got the chance to work at the world's biggest underground laboratory and the birthplace of the internet. Whilst on my course, I was lucky enough to be chosen from thousands of students to spend a year at the CERN European laboratory, in Geneva, as part of my degree course placement, which ultimately led me to getting a job there.

I will forever be in debt to the lecturers for putting me forward for a work placement that has led to an amazing job, surrounded by some of the most brilliant minds. it's fair to say my university education well and truly broadened my horizons."
