A student from Aylesbury is celebrating after achieving First Class Honours in her degree.
Michaela Pink joined the University of Worcester’s Business Management course four years ago after achieving A*AB in her A-levels at the Royal Masonic School for Girls.
The 21-year-old said: “Worcester was one of the only universities that offered a placement year. For my course, I felt in order to increase my employability, I needed the experience to go with the degree and I think it's great that the University push for this and are increasingly getting more students on placements.”
“My time at the University of Worcester was great, I met so many people and experienced so much,” she added. “Going on my placement year after second year was difficult as I watched most of my University friends finish their dissertations and final year whilst I was working in London. But taking a placement year was one of my best decisions as it's opened up a lot of opportunities and looks great on my CV with my degree.”
Michaela, who was awarded an Academic Scholarship at the event of her second year in recognition of her excellent results, will graduate during a ceremony at Worcester Cathedral in November.
“I am so pleased to achieve a First Class Honours and it is a reflection of the continual and considerable effort I put into my Business Management Degree,” she said.
“Achieving First Class Honours has provided me with a spring board to an exciting and progressive career. I am currently working at Banya Family Placement Agency in London as Compliance Officer and Recruitment Co-Ordinator, where I worked on my placement year.
“In the long-term, I would love to emigrate and continue my career and self-development abroad and explore international businesses.”
