Francesca Iorio - BSc (Hons) Economics

Where are you from and which course did you choose to study?

Hi, my name is Francesca and I am a third-year BSc (Hons) Economics with Finance student at LSBU. I moved to London in 2019 from Italy after completing my final year in high school. I've always been interested in London, in its multicultural aspects, and I wanted to try to live here and see what this city could give me. During my gap year in London I started looking at various universities and economic courses, since I've always had an interest in this subject and London boosted this curiosity.

Putting my experience to good use

The best thing about my experience at LSBU was meeting the valuable people I have shared my journey with, but also the lecturers and seminar tutors that provided me with the support I needed.

What did you do next with your degree?

I now work in an NHS Trust as a management accountant. The thing I am most enjoying about my job is constantly learning new things and the development that I see on a personal and professional level.

More than just a degree?

My placement helped me understand the things that I am good at, what I can improve, but, above all, the path I want to undertake.

What advice would you give to people thinking about studying at LSBU?

The advice I would give to people thinking of studying at LSBU would be to make use of all the resources available, and take part in the events organised By LSBU. This will allow them to enrich their academic journey and make new connections.
