We’re both privileged to be OU alumni and interns of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust (LWT). It’s worth highlighting that OU students have considerable personal commitments and that’s before studying! We frequently commit ourselves for 16 – 32 hours per week during a 30 week period. Consequently, we’re left with very little time for vital work experience to complement our academic efforts.
Fortunately, once again, a joint collaboration between the OU, LWT and Santander has created the unique opportunity of a 10-week work placement. Previous OU interns Lucy Lovell and Doug Smith set the standard for us to achieve. We intend to do ourselves, our university and partner organisations proud.
