The students were successful in both negotiation scenarios and received the highest overall score.

The winners were presented with a trophy and a week’s work experience at the Rugby Football Union at Twickenham.

Millie said: “Representing the university in this competition was an amazing opportunity and something I will never forget. Billy and I were absolutely thrilled to have won, and we couldn’t quite believe it when they announced the result. I am so proud that our hard work has paid off.”
