Hannah Oliver, 21, an Accounting Apprentice at Furness College, lives at Spark Bridge near Ulverston

Hannah was unsure what she wanted to do after gaining her A-levels, but her decision to stay in Cumbria and consider her options has led to a promising career in Finance.


Hannah enjoys nights out in Cumbria and doesn’t feel as though she’s missing out on a university social life.

“I love a night out in Ulverston as it’s always really busy,” she said. “It’s much easier to chat to friends in pubs there than if you’re out clubbing.

“I also enjoy going to Bowness or taking the train to Lancaster.

“It’s much easier to socialise in Cumbria than people think.”
