PR student featured in Daily Mail


Final year student Claire Thomas appeared in a Daily Mail feature on how students fund their courses:

“In the three years I’ve been at uni, I’ve worked as a barmaid and shop assistant – both jobs I’ve had to quit because of going home over the summer holidays. Having contracted hours was stressful because no matter how many lectures I had, I still had to turn up for work.”

“After graduating I’m going to carry on doing promo work while I decide whether to move to London, where most of the good consumer PR agencies are. I don’t know whether I’ll ever be able to afford to live in the capital, though.”

“When I do start earning a proper wage, I’ll have to pay back around £15,000, which is a lot less than some because my uni has quite low tuition fees in comparison. There’s been talk that the fees for my course are going to go up to around £8,000 a year soon, so more students will have to find part-time work like me.”
