Celine told us:
I am thrilled to have won the award. It has been an incredible experience and I would highly recommend students to apply for the awards next year. I have been given an amazing opportunity to work for EDF energy on a paid internship this summer.
I am very excited to discover more about the low carbon nuclear industry as I go on a Nuclear Power Station tour in France. I am very proud to have represented my University throughout the awards ceremony in Canary Wharf and to have met Sir Trevor McDonald. It is an honor to be this year’s Low Carbon Undergraduate of the Year.
Awards of this type are a great experience. They give you the opportunity to experience an application and assessment centre process. Winners often get to undertake valuable work experience and/or expand their networks and experience via visits. Winning or being shortlisted is a significant achievement to add to your CV.
