Before I came to Brookes, I studied Maths, Physics and Chemistry A-Levels at Monkton Combe School, Bath. I chose Brookes because I had the right grades for the course, the City of Oxford was a good place too and I knew people at the local church I was going to attend.
I enjoyed most aspects of the course. I enjoyed the friendships with both students and lecturers the most! Although I enjoyed being at University, I really valued getting on with starting in a full time job and learning new skills and applying practical skills and knowledge in the workplace. I applied for a job in Oxford working as an office and events manager for a charity I was involved in for years (started two years after my final exam). I am now working in London as a Personal Assistant to the Director of a charity.
My advice for others would be to work hard (but not too hard) and make the most of the time - full time jobs are hard!
