Once you kick off studying and working with the Business and Law faculty, you become part of a big family which takes care of your wellbeing as well as your development. I lived this in person: I was part of the intern programme and when that finished, I was asked if I wanted to become a senior intern.

Guess what… I said a big YES, and I could not have made a better choice.

Indeed, here there are just a few things I had the chance to take part in as a senior intern, which increased my confidence to a great extent and are valuable experiences to put on my CV as well.

A remarkable one is when I facilitated team-building activities with a team of senior interns for the new interns in Ely. I was trained on leadership skills by a professional and I had the chance to put into practice, as a facilitator, the theories and concepts I had learnt in the training. The most fulfilling thing was acknowledging that I was able to successfully run team-building activities, showing great team-working skills. All the interns were happy and satisfied by the end of that day. If I hadn’t challenged myself and accepted to undertake training and facilitate the event, I would have never realised that my skills have actually developed a lot in the last year.

The Faculty of Business and Law does offer a lot of opportunities to get involved and take the most out of uni life. For instance, as a senior intern I also took part in panels to recruit professors, which is great. In this way, I did feel part of my university. I did so many other things and I also have many more planned for next September.
