Universities with the best industry connections?Watch
I'm Charlie, one of the Lancaster University student ambassadors. I'm currently in my 2nd year of a degree in Finance & Economics - basically, 50% accounting & finance modules with 50% economics modules.
Personally, I was overwhelmed by the amounts of events hosted at Lancaster. I have been to networking events with firms like MUFG and Deloitte through my careers advisors. Guest lecturers often lecture and this is always heavily advertised within lectures beforehand so they are hard to miss! Even the societies here at Lancaster have been able to put on and host some great speakers and also provide very effective networking events.
I would strongly advise making sure that you have a Linked In account set up before coming to university, so that you can add people that you network with and build up a strong foundation network for when you finish your degree!
I hope this was helpful!
