|Course:||Health and Social Care Level 3 Extended Diploma|
After getting cold feet with the A Levels I had chosen at my local sixth form, I applied to The Henley college at the beginning of September 2017 with the help of my dad who has worked at the College for a decade. I studied Health and Social Care Extended Level 3 and instantly felt like the course was for me. During my GCSEs I was interested in psychology and nursing, and starting a BTEC in a similar field allowed my interest to further and my academic side to grow immensely.
Despite being sad to leave Henley and being apprehensive about my new life chapter, I am so incredibly grateful to the College and what they have done for me over the two years. I have not looked back since joining and have gained such independence and personal growth that would not have been achieved at my local school sixth form. After receiving offers from them all, I chose the University of Birmingham as my firm choice and Surrey as my insurance.”
