I completed an internship while I was studying for my undergraduate degree. The experience was really helpful and insightful as it gave me first-hand experience on what I had been learning and helped me decide how I wanted to progress with my career.

The University of York allows you to improve your employability skills. My first job experience was that of an International Ambassador, a position I still love working at even today. With help from the Careers and Placements team members, I was also able to secure an internship last year in Biology.
