I’ll be returning to Deloitte as a graduate!
The computer science degree allows you to take your studies in a number of directions. After studying a broad range of compulsory subjects at the beginning of the course, the final year is far more self-selected. I was particularly interested in human-computer interaction, so chose areas to reflect this topic.
My placement year at Deloitte in London helped me to use what I’d learnt, explore my interests and find my passions. I was given responsibilities way beyond my expectations and loved rising to the challenge. I was definitely thrown in at the deep end when I found myself managing a key part of a project worth millions of pounds and involving 200 employees!
My first two years at Bath had prepared me well. The technical language I needed to use and understand in the workplace was familiar, and our team projects made it easy for me to integrate into groups within the workforce. As a result, I’ll be returning to Deloitte as a graduate, working in technology consulting.
Bath is a great place to be a student, and just walking around the city makes you happy. My advice is to make the most of all the opportunities – it’s silly not to, when there’s so much on offer!
