When I came to the Open Day it was everything I wanted from a university and I really liked Oxford as a city. The high entry requirements indicated the scientific nature of the course and that was a really important factor to me.

Through the connections I have made during my time at Brookes I was able to work with the British Equestrian Federation. I gained a place as an Official at the Horse of the Year show during the summer before my final year.

As the course only takes a small amount of students you get to build a really personal relationship with everyone on the course and the lecturers.

After completing my course I would love to do a PhD. I’m keeping my eye out for the right one as my ideal career would be going into research.
