Students recognised for going the extra mile during internship programme
23 March 2017
Two Humanities students participating in the 2016 Student Experience Internship programme have been awarded for their work.
LLB Law student, Anna Grant was a student support and advice intern in The University of Manchester Atrium. She was responsible for researching and implementing ways in which the University can encourage students to take control of their own finances, as well as informing staff of how to use these resources effectively. Her manager, Katie Urnevitch, stated: “Anna is a deserving candidate for this prize due to the legacy and lasting impact she has had on the Student Support and Advice service, which will shape and develop our future work.”
Madeleine Jones, a BA Politics, Philosophy and Economics student in the School of Social Sciences was a crowdfunding and marketing intern with charity RE>BUILD in Bury. She spent her summer updating both marketing materials and a website, therefore moving the organisation closer to being able to develop a crowdfunding campaign for a key project. Madeleine’s manager, Liz Jackson, said: “She worked really hard to achieve our stated aims in a very short space of time and in a world where young people often receive bad press, she can feel rightly proud of what she achieved.”
The judging panel of Dr Paul Redmond, Tammy Goldfeld and Ian Bradley from the University's Directorate for the Student Experience, identified the two winners among 22 nominated students, from over 70 who took part in the Student Experience Internship programme last summer.
