I'm Will Land and I'm in my fifth year reading an MA in German and International Relations at the University of St Andrews. I spent my third year teaching English in Vienna with the British Council, and then spent last summer teaching English at a Buddhist Monastery in Kathmandu. Both of which were incredible experiences.

This past year at St Andrews I have become heavily involved in St Andrews Radio, having won two awards for my radio show, as well as an award for a radio play which I co-wrote and produced as part of the On the Rocks Festival, the UK’s largest student-run arts festival.

My final year at St Andrews should prove to be amazing too, having just been made Director of a festival-inspired charity event called Under Canvas, which this year featured some of the UK’s best music talent. Over the last few years our event’s committee has donated thousands of pounds to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, a cause very close to our heart.

The financial support that the MI provides has proven to be a major blessing, it has allowed me the opportunity to travel around the German speaking world to improve my spoken language, as well as visiting places I would never have otherwise had the opportunity to. But perhaps the most important part of the MI for me is the mentoring support that they offer, and in-particular the support they can provide when trying to organise work experience and internships. Having been a part of the MI for several years now, I can pay testament to the fact that when you join, you join a whole support network, not just a bursary. | Martin Gill 07983 478571 | Mandy Parker 07834 771818
