It’s finally June and summer has officially begun. I had such a productive and eventful month! Exams ended on the 7th of June and my friends and I flew to Copenhagen, Denmark right after exams. We were there for a whole week (8th to 13th June) and had a great time! We travelled on a budget and managed the whole trip for under 350 pounds! (inclusive of flights, accommodation and expenses) One tip is to get the Copenhagen card which has free admission to 73 attractions and free access to all public transport within the capital region. Copenhagen is a pretty expensive country, however, a way to save if you’re travelling on a budget, is to buy groceries and cook your own meals 🙂
After the trip, I attended a 2 day Teaching and Learning Conference in Liverpool John Moores University. It was a large conference attracting more than 400 delegates from different universities all over the country. There were different lecturers and students sharing their experience, their research in pedagogy and also demonstration sessions, showing delegates how to use different methods for interactive lectures etc.

After the conference, I had a week placement for PwC Women in Business Programme in Bristol (20th – 24th June). I was in the Assurance line and I spent the whole week shadowing current PwC employees. I have learned so much during the week and am clearer of my career options in the future.
During the week, I was in the office for 2 days, and client’s office for 2 days. On the last day, I was in the Tax department. During my week’s placement, the EU referendum took place on the 23rd, therefore there was a huge buzz in the office on the 24th and I managed to sit in a client webcast by PwC London office. The office was also modern and extremely beautiful!
After a very eventful month, I flew home on the 26th of June and arrived safely in Malaysia on the 27th :D. I had such a great academic year and I look forward to the next one in September!
