Studying Business Management with Finance

“I have lived with my grandparents all my life and they are both retired, so it is difficult for them to support me financially. I have a part time job which allows me to have some financial independence, but a lot of the equipment for university can be expensive and I don’t always have enough money to buy everything I need.

“I wanted to do a placement year but there may be additional costs involved in doing one. With this scholarship I will be able to confidently apply for a placement as I know I can support myself on it. By doing a placement year I hope to gain experience that will make me a stronger candidate for jobs when I finish university.

“I would like to be a financial analyst and I believe this degree will help me in terms of the skills and the knowledge that I require for the job. Meeting new people at university, both other students and lecturers, has been great for me to develop my social skills. It has improved my confidence which will help when I go into the world of work.”
