“I have enjoyed my time at New College immensely. My lecturers are incredibly passionate and the courses are fantastic. I was lucky enough to go on a trip to the British History Museum and got to see some of the most well-known and iconic artefacts. My goal is to go as far as possible in my education, studying History. I will be going to Cardiff University in September and then after that, I have an aim to complete a Master’s Degree and hopefully one day go on to complete a phD.”

“My courses at New College were interesting and the teachers knew how to engage us as students in a way that brought out the best in us. This really made a difference to my student experience. Since College, I have become a writer of flash fiction – stories of around 1000 words and often much fewer – and have published two short collections.”
