Graduate profile

You’re graduating, congratulations! How are you feeling?

Thank you! I’m over the moon that I made it, but I don’t think it has really dawned on me yet that I have actually completed a degree and finished university. I think on graduation day is when I will realise that I really did it.

What were the highlights of your time at Abertay?

Some of the highlights of my time at Abertay University were meeting some of my best friends, becoming president of the African-Caribbean Society in 4th year, taking part in some exceptional work experience opportunities, being independent and helping to create some fantastic content with the student social media team all while achieving a 2:1!

You were part of IGG, what was that experience like?

It was a great experience as I had the opportunity to gain some insightful knowledge into what it’s like working for some really successful and major companies such as BT, Heineken and Lloyds Bank. The mentors from each of the various companies gave some amazing tips that I’ll definitely be taking on board when looking for a graduate job. 

You were also heavily involved in student societies, how much did that add to your experience here?

It made my experience of studying at Abertay incredible because I got to play a key role in organising a number of amazing events, creating some wonderful opportunities for the society members (all while boosting my CV) and even got to visit Amsterdam with another society!

What’s next for you?

Currently I’m still working at my part-time job and counting down to graduation, so I’m making final preparations for that. But I’m hoping to secure my first graduate job, ideally within the next few weeks and hopefully in the Events and Marketing industry.

What’s your long-term ambition?

My long term goal would be to have travelled to 30 countries by the age of 30 and also to be running multiple successful businesses in various industries with the experience I will have (hopefully) gained working my way up the career ladder.

What advice do you have for future students here?

If you can, try and secure a part-time job before coming to university (or during the summer holidays) and build some savings, because any extra cash will definitely come in handy on a rainy day but also enjoy your time at university and grab any opportunities you can because trust me, it’ll be over before you know it!
