How did you find the move from school to college?

I found it a big jump from GCSEs, but it’s a really welcoming environment. The atmosphere is friendly and there are so many fun activities to get involved in. 

How has the College supported you with your university application?

The College’s Careers Department has been really supportive, guiding me through the university application process and advising me about work experience, my personal statement and interview techniques. 

What are your career plans?

Since I was 12 years old I’ve wanted to be a vet. I love animals and it’s a job that combines all my interests. I want to study Veterinary Medicine and have had offers from all four universities I applied to. I’m hoping to go to the Royal Veterinary College in London. 

Have you done any interesting work experience?

I organised a range of different experiences to give me an insight into the varied role of a vet. I spent a week milking cows on a farm which was really hands on and took me out of my comfort zone. I visited a research company that uses animals in testing, I shadowed a vet working in an abattoir and I volunteered at an exotic animals’ shelter. My favourite though was helping with the lambing at Bockett’s Farm. Hannah, 2017
