Sophie Phillipson

founder of student and graduate support network HelloGrads

Sophie Phillipson, 27, started HelloGrads with her mother Julie, when they realised students are leaving university ill-equipped with the knowledge they need for life beyond academia. The mismatch of high expectations and the difficult scenario facing graduates, combined with a lack of knowledge and life skills, signals tough times ahead. Today’s students are faced with not enough jobs to go around, massive debts, an unaffordable rental market and a lack of financial know-how. All this can take its toll on mental health and wellbeing. HelloGrads is for anyone who feels underprepared for life after university.
