Kelso woman’s exciting year capped with QMU graduation

By Press Office

A Kelso woman graduated recently from Queen Margaret University (QMU), Edinburgh, topping off an exciting year which included a five-month exchange to Australia’s Gold Coast for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Twenty-one-year-old Lucy-Jane Robeson graduated from QMU on Tuesday 9 July having completed a BA in Events Management. As part of her studies, she was able to travel to Australia where she took part in a five-month exchange to Griffith University on the Gold Coast during the 2018 Commonwealth Games. “It was the highlight of my course,” said Lucy-Jane. “It made me work hard and pushed me out of my comfort zone.”

During her time at QMU, Lucy-Jane also benefitted from the Lord Forte Foundation Scholarship – a monetary award of £2,500 that supports students to reach their full academic potential while pursuing additional opportunities in-line with their career aspirations. With this financial support, Lucy-Jane plans to travel to different countries to gain more experience working with global events, to better understand the challenges they face.

Although she has no fixed plans quite yet, Lucy Jane would like to work in London to take advantage of the opportunity to work with high-profile clients in the events management sector.
