What is your course of study?

Mathematics and Finance BSc/Mmath

Why did you choose to study at City, University of London?

I applied through clearing after a couple of gap years working overseas, City was the best institution on the Guardians top University list that was close to my achieved grades.

What do you enjoy most about your course?

I particularly enjoy the finance side of my course, especially with being in London, the heart of it all.

What has been your favourite module and why?

Programming in my first year. It started off slow with the basics but once it got going I really enjoyed it and went on to teach myself more and more. Its come in very useful already and am certain it will be even more so in the future as i learn more.

What has been a highlight of your course so far?

Gaining an Internship with Barclays Investment Bank for this summer 2014. I can't wait!

What do you enjoy about City?

A big part of my time goes to organising and having fun as Treasurer of the Mountaineering Society. A big group of us go indoor rock climbing twice a week in East London, and on a couple of bigger trips a year, I love it. 

What do you plan to do after you graduate?

Fingers crossed that I make a good impression on my Internship at Barclays and get offered a graduate position! To gain an Internship and increase my employability, I created my own personal website.
