We caught up with Owen Bell who graduated from our department of Mathematical Sciences last year.
Very positive, I enjoyed the choice of modules and I was given practical skills which have helped me in my professional life.
For me, the dissertation was the most enjoyable part of the course. The chance to explore a subject in depth on my own was very rewarding.
My fondest memories of Durham are of the sports and societies that I took part in whilst I was there – particularly the Durham University Hill Walking Society.
Since I left Durham, I have been working as a consultant analyst for Oliver Wyman in Newcastle.
My plans for the future are to keep working on projects that I find interesting and to continue to develop my professional skillset.
Get involved in as many societies as you can and, if you get a chance, volunteer to help run one of them – serving on an exec gives really valuable experience that can be helpful when you start working.
