IFP Alumnus Ilyada Coruk


Ilayda CorukIlyada Coruk, from Turkey, completed the IFP in 2015 before progressing to a degree in Politics with Business Management here at QMUL.  She was an excellent student on the IFP and made a significant contribution to the programme, not least as course rep.  Ilyada is a great example of an individual who enhances her studies (and no doubt her experience of life in the UK) by engaging in personal development opportunities outside of the classroom.  Ilyada is currently at the end of the second year of her QMUL degree, and she is also doing a marketing internship with a software company called ProFinda in London.

Ilyada is a wine enthusiast, and managed to turn her passion into an opportunity to learn and develop transferable skills last September with an internship at Castello di Roncade in the North East of Italy.  Ilyada wrote a fascinating account of her internship, which can be found here via Linkedin.  The article was originally featured, along with the photograph above in Castello di Roncade November issue 2016.
