I came to The Henley College from Gillotts School in Henley. I chose this course as I love science however I don't like the stress of exams. As this is an 100% coursework based course it was perfect for me! I love carrying out experiments in the chemistry sections of the course. I have also enjoyed the other practical sides of the course, it was fun constructing a crime scene and photographing it.
I am hoping to gain a career working in science labs and testing evidence from crime scenes as I find it so interesting that something so small such as a clothing fiber can link someone to a crime.
