Internship Pays Off
Sam was studying a 3 year computing degree at University of Worcester. He chose to take a year out to spend a year applying his skills to the real workplace. He joined borwell as an internship, a small software house based in the Malvern Hills Science Park and is now reaping the rewards of that audacious decision.
The year spent at borwell (2011-2012) allowed Sam to develop, not only his software programming skills, but more importantly, his self-confidence and team–working skills.
He returned to University in September 2012 with a clear idea of his career path. borwell sponsored Sam’s final year, giving Sam financial security and allowing him to focus on his course-work.
Sam said, “I was able to secure a 1st class BSc Honours Degree in Computing in July 2013. I am very grateful to Andrea & Steve for their advice and support. This achievement would not have been possible without the skills I learned from the borwell team on my placement year.”
