Why did you choose Reigate College?

I wanted a change from my previous school and liked Reigate College when I visited at an Open Evening. It offered lots of opportunities that I knew would be helpful for my career such as the Medics, Vets & Dentists (MVD) Programme.

How and why did you decide which subjects to study?

I chose Biology and Chemistry as I knew they’d help me pursue a career in Medicine and I chose English as I really enjoy reading. Psychology was something completely new and sounded interesting.

How did you find the move from school to College?

It was a bit of an adjustment but also very exciting.

How have you found the teaching staff?

My teachers have been very supportive and I find all my lessons really interesting and it’s clear that the they are all passionate about what they’re teaching.

Tell us about any College activities you’ve been involved in outside lessons.

I’ve been a part of the MVD society, which really helped with my application to medical school and allowed me to make friends with students who have similar career goals and interests to me.

What are your plans for the future?

I’m planning on going to UCL to study Medicine. Right now, I’m interested in becoming an Accident and Emergency Doctor.
