Destination: University of Hertfordshire
Subject: Finance and Economics
Date of Leaving Hatch End High School: July 2013
After studying Maths, Business Studies and IT as my A Levels at Hatch End High School, I studied Finance and Economics at the University of Hertfordshire. In my opinion what I learnt most at university was my ability to manage my workload and part time job efficiently, and to work independently by assessing my own situation. These skills are vital and will be needed no matter what career path you may choose. There are plenty of activities and work experience to get involved in, which I highly recommend since employers want to see an all-rounded person. I graduated this past summer with a 1st class degree, and I am now completing a graduate scheme at Ernst & Young as an Auditor, training to be an ACA qualified chartered accountant.
My biggest advice to any prospective university student is to focus on more than just your studies, expose yourself to different scenarios, everything you do from now will all count!
