Sarah Morgan 3rd year Civil and Environmental Engineering
The Alumni award helped towards my transport costs for my summer placement with Neath Port Talbot Council. I had arranged the placement through the Institute of Civil Engineers. The experience was related to my degree and invaluable in relating it to the workplace. I gained in confidence and learnt that I am good at motivating myself , completing tasks and being punctual.
Update- The grant got me a graduate job. As part of the application project I was quizzed in depth about my work experience. Without the fund I could not have taken up the opportunity and I don't think I would have had the experience to get he job.
