ITF's Caitlin Forsyth graduates with distinction

posted 9 Dec 2014

High-achieving Caitlin Forsyth is celebrating university and career success as she graduates from Robert Gordon University (RGU) with distinction.

At the age of 22, Caitlin has achieved an LLM in Oil and Gas Law and a First Class LLB(Hons) Law degree, as well as securing a full-time job in Oil and Gas.

Caitlin is originally from Forres, however her interest in the oil and gas industry brought her to Aberdeen where she currently resides.

She said: "Living in the north-east of Scotland, oil and gas has always appealed to me. While the LLB provided a solid legal foundation, the specific nature of the LLM would help to set myself out against others in what is an increasingly competitive sector.

"RGU was always a first choice for me because of the employability success rates in addition to the LLM's affiliation with the Energy Institute.

"I found the individual modules themselves to be really insightful and practical examples were regularly used within the lectures so an up-to-date perspective was always applied."

Caitlin was lucky enough to receive one of the Carnegie-Cameron Postgraduate Bursaries which are awarded to RGU students who are 'qualified and deserving, industrious and ambitious'. She said this really made the LLM possible.

Alongside her studies, Caitlin secured a job with ITF (Industry Technology Facilitator) part-time as a Contracts and QHSE Assistant which has since evolved into a full-time position as a Technology and Contracts Coordinator.
