"When I first discovered that I would be getting the opportunity to travel to India for the Live-in Labs programme, I was extremely excited. Having never visited any part of Asia, India was a country which particularly interested me due to its amazing culture, people and (most importantly) food! I was however a little daunted by the significant costs which surround such a trip, with major expenses involved, particularly around my flights and accommodation over the two month stay. The UoM work experience bursary was a huge boost in my fundraising effort and I am extremely grateful for receiving their support. It eased a lot of my fundraising worries and allowed me to focus on my work during a crucial part of the semester. The project I was involved in has certainly helped improve my personal skills and I look forward to making use of the experience I gained through it, whether in the workplace, interviews or daily life."
