News of Tiara chosen as a finalist of the Targetjobs Undergraduate of the Year Wards
We are delighted to announce that Tiara Sahar Ataii (MML, 2016) entered the TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards. Tiara beat off stiff competition and has now been named as a finalist for The Undergraduate of the Year Award for Impactful Social Action 2020 with Clifford Chance.
The TARGETjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards is a competition open to students across the UK where they can win prizes such as placements, internships and trips abroad with internationally recognised organisations. This year there were 13 different awards that cover a range of academic subjects and skillsets. This is now the 11th year of the awards and we had over 4,500 students apply.
To make it to the final of the Undergraduate of the Year Awards students had to first complete an application, including essay style questions and online tests. Once passing that stage students were either invited to a telephone interview or take part in an assessment centre. Clifford Chance have been extremely impressed with Tiara and has invited them to the grand final taking place on Friday 4 September where each winner will be announced. The final is usually held in person in London, with only the student finalists and employer partners invited to attend. This year, however, the final will be held virtually with Rachel Riley as the host.
We wish Tiara good luck on 4 September.
