Everyone aims to come out of university with a qualification, but there are so many more opportunities to be grabbed while studying to make you more attractive to employers. I took part in the Sunderland Professional Award which rewards undergraduate students for making the most of the work experience, volunteering and employability skills they achieve while studying.
I also took part in the Leading Lights programme, which looks at building leadership qualities that again many employers look for when recruiting graduates.
As well as investing in a qualification, studying at Sunderland offers the opportunity to invest in yourself and your own life experience. I think Sunderland is a great place to study and I wouldn’t choose anywhere else."
