Tim Heard, BA Geography 2011

I successfully completed my BA in Geography in 2011, having started in 2008, upon successful completion of the course I went straight onto the Barclays Graduate Scheme.

I always get asked how I moved into Banking from a Geographical background - but the transition was actually very easy! In fact there were a large number of geographers from various universities on my scheme. My scheme was two years long so I have just completed this, performing highly enough to secure a final placement in Project Management - a career choice I could recommend to geographers as it compliments the skill sets developed via the degree course (in some suprising ways) and through, for example, being on the GeogSoc committee! (in fact I got asked about the latter in my Barclays interview)
