BCUC Graduate now Commercial Manager at top UK telecoms firm

Age: 29

Studied: BA Hons Business Management

From: Burnley

Formerly: BTEC Sports Science, Burnley College Sixth Form Centre.


Jaffer Khan is one to watch! Graduating from Burnley College University Courses in 2019 with a BA Hons degree in Business Management he went on to secure a place on a prestigious commercial management graduate scheme with multinational telecoms company British Telecom.


The former pupil of Sir John Thursby studied for a BTEC at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre before embarking on a degree course at BCUC.  Jaffer liked the environment – and knew the tutors – so felt encouraged to stay on.  He particularly appreciated the small-sized classes which meant that support was more individual and help was always on hand when he needed it.


In his spare time Jaffer can be seen building up his LinkedIn profile where he shares his experiences by offering tips and guidance on video to undergraduates hoping to replicate his success.


‘Gaining a place on a graduate scheme is highly competitive,’ says Jaffer ‘and I benefited greatly from the Student Services team at BCUC, getting assistance with applications, taking their advice and ultimately it paid off.  I’m now on a two-year programme, with plenty of variety, three rotations and a career for me at the end.  I couldn’t ask for more.’
