Chris Richardson Wright

BA International Relations (2011)

Fundraising Assistant, Practical Action


"My name’s Chris Richardson-Wright, I graduated from the University of Birmingham with a degree in International Relations and I now work for an international development NGO called Practical Action and I work in fundraising.

I decided to study at the University of Birmingham because of the music course strangely at first. I came here and wandered into a discussion on politics and international relations and was really hooked. The campus was stunning, I really loved my time here because of the beautiful surroundings and the course and the department was obviously really well recognised as well.

The best thing for me was the opportunities that I got in my extra-curricular activities. I made full use of the opportunities available in the students union and I really enjoyed all of the work I did in charity fundraising, volunteering and events management as well."
