Spring Insight - II : The Experience

Following my previous blog What are Spring Insights and How to Prepare for them, this is an account of my actual Spring week work experience. Following a pretty  rigorous recruitment process, I got selected for Insight Weeks in the technology divisions of Citi and J.P. Morgan during the Easter break, that is March-April 2017.

Exploring Durham Castle

For the last two years I have been exploring Durham Castle. In 2015 I was awarded the University College Durham Trust Scholarship which gave me the opportunity to work as a volunteer, assisting the curator with the collections whilst undertaking an MA in Museum and Artefact Studies, all kindly funded by the Durham Castle Trust.

My decision to go to Durham, and specifically to Van Mildert College, was made during a summer school I went on in 2011. Everyone was immediately so friendly, and so passionate about their university that it was instantly infectious, so by the end of the week, I couldn’t imagine finishing my education anywhere else.
