What made you pick the course you studied?
I picked the health and social care degree as it gave me a wide choice of options in my future. I plan to be a social worker, however I realise that the ‘lifespan’ of a social worker tend to be around eight years. So with that in mind, my degree can point me in other directions later in life.
What did you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
I really enjoyed making life long friends and learning new skills. My tutors were very knowledgeable. I also enjoyed working with a company outside of Petroc which has possible opened up some doors for future developments.
What are your plans now that you have graduated?
My plans for the future is to apply for Frontline (social work programme). This will enable me to become a social worker whilst gaining my MA in social work.
Any advice for someone thinking of choosing the same course as you?
Absolutely go for it. It has the potential to open so many doors for you in the future.
