When going through the University selection process, there were a few things at Brunel that really appealed to me. Primarily this was the placement option integrated into my degree programme, Finance and Accounting. This was in addition to the multiculturalism of the university and its buzzing atmosphere, which became very apparent after the open day. The convenience of everything being available in one place on one campus made Brunel a highly attractive university choice.
As I approached my placement year, I found the Placement and Careers Centre to be extremely helpful and supportive. Although the application process is an independent one, the Centre provides all the facilities possible to help you produce a well-rounded application. I was lucky to obtain a placement at Air France and worked in the finance department for a year, which was an amazing experience full of growth and opportunity.
I intend to go further to complete the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) professional body qualifications, a decision which was made possible thanks to the Placement opportunity I had.
