Robert Rickard

BSc Natural Sciences, 2012, Business Management Scheme, BT


Hi my name is Robert Rickard; I graduated from UCL in 2012. I majored in Condensed matter physics and minored in history and philosophy of science. Natural Sciences at UCL has allowed me to study a rather specialised area of physics whist still being able to pursue my interest in history of science. The flexibility of the course was the main reason that I chose to it and I cannot recommend it highly enough to those of you who have not yet decided what area of science you wish to specialise in. Since leaving UCL I started work with BT on a Business Management graduate scheme, the support and information available to me whilst at UCL really helped me when applying for this job, and the skills I picked up at UCL continue to be of use. There are many societies at UCL that can help you to develop a whole range of business skills, being treasure of the NatSci Soc and project managing a project within UCL SIFE were both great experiences. I was also the senior mentor within the Natural science department which was good fun, there is a real community among the natural scientists, the common room has a really relaxed atmosphere and people are always on hand to help you with anything, ranging from coursework to suggesting a fun night out!
