More than happy to help

Throughout my time at Franklin Sixth Form College I was always interested in the sciences, and in particular the fantastic Biology course at Franklin. Having gained A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Law at Franklin College, I first went on to the University of Sheffield to study a BSc in Biomedical Science. I then gained experience in many different departments of the large teaching hospitals in Sheffield and spent time locally in Grimsby hospital. From this experience, I decided that I wanted to become a diagnostic radiographer. I, therefore, got back in touch with my old tutors at Franklin, who were more than happy to help me reapply for a degree in Diagnostic Radiography.

I loved all four courses

Studying at Franklin, I loved all four courses in my first year. It suited me perfectly to be analysing feminist poetry in the morning, conjugating verbs before lunch, and integrating exponential functions in the afternoon. Sadly I had to let one go – I dropped French moving into my second year, having developed an intention to apply for Economics at university. I did well in my second year at Franklin and moved on to St Hugh’s College, Oxford, where I benefitted from some of the best tutoring in the world. All of this gave me a superb footing to move into business. I’m now working at a strategy consultancy in Oxford as an analyst.
