Why did you choose to come to Petroc?
Petroc is close to where I live so it was easy to walk to – and also it’s a really nice college!
What made you choose your course?
I chose my course mainly because I wanted to continue to study the sciences that I learnt at GCSE.
What did you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
The staff are really good and attentive. I also did two Academies – VETMED and Environmental Sustainability – which were really good and a great addition to my studies as they linked to the scenes that I was doing. I particularly enjoyed a trip to Lundy where we explored the island, saw puffins, and spoke to rangers about how they run the island.
What are your future plans?
I am heading to Swansea to study Zoology. I have always wanted to study animal or plant science. At first I thought about becoming a vet but zoology fitted more with the courses I wanted to study. I then hope to move into research and do a doctorate or work in the industry studying wildlife.
Do you have any advice for someone choosing the same course as you?
Find what works for you and make the most of your time as it goes really quickly!
A Level Biology, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature
The staff are really good and attentive.
