"I’m currently a student studying MEng Civil and Structural Engineering at the University Of Sheffield which is within the Russell Group. Last year I was awarded an Undergraduate ICE (Institute of Civil Engineering) Quest Scholarship sponsored by Skanska, a Swedish Civil Engineering Contractor, of £10,000 and paid summer internships with Skanska as well as a graduate position."

"I feel exceptionally lucky to have received this, it is all a direct result of the careers department helping me achieve the Arkwright Scholarship. I can’t thank you enough!"

Harriet Tomlin, St Catherine's College (2009-2014)
