Another Scholarship Winner

Philippa JamesPhilippa James, who has just completed the first year of her Chemistry with Study in Industry degree, has recently been awarded a prestigious Ernst and Young scholarship. This is the second year that a chemistry student has been successful in this scheme that offers experience of working for one of the ‘Big 4 Firms’ and an annual bursary – congratulations!

Philippa told us: "When I learnt about the scholarship and what it included I was immediately sure I was going to apply. I'm not certain what I want to pursue as a career yet so it's a great opportunity to find out more about that industry without definitely having to work for them when graduated. The whole process was all a great experience and I was completely ecstatic when EY rang to say I had been successful. I think even if I hadn't been awarded the scholarship I learnt so many skills and had a great chance to improve my CV in the application process and assessment centre."
