Ida Petäjäsoja

Ida is a first year Land Economy undergraduate at the University of Cambridge. After graduating she plans to apply for a master’s degree in developmental economics and hopes to pursue a related career in South America. Ida graduated from Oulun Lyseon lukio’s IB Diploma Programme last year and knows very well just how baffling and frustrating the application process can be at times. She is looking forward to helping prospective candidates with their applications to make the process smoother and less stressful. As she applied to the U.S. in addition to the UK she would be more than happy to share tips regarding both systems as well as their differences. She has had many great opportunities for trying new sports and other activities as well as for meeting brilliant people in her time at university so far, thus she would like to see studying in the UK and the U.S. become more accessible and less daunting to young people abroad.
