Durham University is one of the few institutions in the Deloitte Global Universities Program
This matches top international students from select universities with career opportunities in their home country or another location of interest.
Last years’ successful Durham applicants include Angel Chan, Tommy Poon and Vivien Tse, all from Hong Kong. They were all accounting and finance undergraduate students at Queen’s Campus involved in extra-curricular activities as well as their studies. This is what they advise:
Angel – ‘Get involved in societies and be confident’
Vivien – ‘Join societies to help your language skills and to adapt to UK life’
