Aberdeen students scoop accolades for their work-study balance

Two University of Aberdeen students have been awarded for their achievements in balancing their studies with part-time employment.

Saskia Wischnewski, who is in her second year, studying for a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology at the institution, and Rachael Hayward, who graduated from the University this summer with a degree in Management, achieved accolades in the Student Employee of the Year awards.

The annual awards recognise the outstanding contributions and achievements of students who effectively combine part-time work with their study commitments, and are co-ordinated by the National Association of Student Employment Services (NASES).

Saskia, who is originally from Nettetal, a village on the western border of Germany, was named International Student Employee of the Year.

She was commended for her success in balancing her academic work with part-time employment as a hotel receptionist at Aberdeen’s Premier Inn. 

Rachael Hayward, who graduated from the University this summer with a degree in Management studies, received the accolade of On-Campus Student Employee of the Year.

She achieved the award for her work as an employee of the University of Aberdeen’s Careers Service.

Saskia and Rachael each received an award and certificate recognising their achievements during an all expenses paid trip to attend the Student Employee of the Year Awards ceremony which took place at the Carneagie College Conference Centre in Dunfermline in July.
