Connor's story

Connor Tilston, a graduate in Accounting and Finance from LJMU, completed a Masters in Financial Management. This was a similar course to the MSc Investment and Finance.

"I chose LJMU for my first degree because of its reputation for getting students into work. I then decided to do the Masters to make myself stand out from other graduates in the job market.

Postgraduate study wasn't really what I was expecting as the workload was entirely different but it has certainly developed me. I am now much better at organising myself and managing my time effectively. Academically the support is always there for you, tutors will see you whenever they are free and are always happy to answer your questions.

The highlight of my programme has been winning the CISI Educational Trust Award as it has really defined the path I want to follow in terms of my career. I have also had a massive amount of support from the careers team, ranging from help applying for jobs to interview practice. I want to work as a wealth manager and, thanks to LJMU, I am now well on the way to achieving my goal."
