Have you ever wondered where our students go to study after college? The latest UCAS data is in, and some of the results might surprise you! 

From Cyber Security and Criminology to Psychology and Fashion – there's a huge range of exciting courses that GC alumni move on to study at some amazing universities. 

And with many of them about to complete their first year of university, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to check in with them and see how they’ve been enjoying it.  

Yssi Leal, studying Bags and Accessories at London College of Fashion

I just finished my first year today and the whole journey of my first year was amazing and fun! It made me into a better person and a better designer. I love being on this course and I enjoy it a lot so I would say that I made the perfect choice to be where I am right now. 

My time in the college helped me a lot to make me who I am right now and that's because my teachers taught me a lot of things that made me improve. I brought those skills and knowledge that I gained from them into my first year of being a university student.  

I enjoyed it a lot and I’d recommend other people to go to Gloucestershire College especially if they want to study Fashion as well.

Jenny Aldridge, studying Dental Hygiene and Therapy at Cardiff University

I really enjoyed my time at college. When I was in school, I did find it difficult and did not enjoy it. However, my access course at college was really enjoyable. 

It helped me gain a lot of confidence and I found the subjects really interesting. They weren’t all necessary for my course but I found psychology and sociology really fascinating.  

It helped by having amazing lecturers who really encouraged me to do well! It was definitely a lot of work with assignments, but I would do it all over again as I loved the course. 

College prepared me for interviews and personal statements, I don’t think I would’ve been as good without that support.  

I was really hoping for Cardiff University. Not a lot of universities have a dental school, so it is really difficult to get into - especially as Dental Hygiene and Therapy only has about 18 spots on the course. 

My photo is from when I was on the phantom head clinic - that was technically my first patient!

Rory O’Brien, studying Animation at University of the Creative Arts

I have just finished my first year of my animation course at UCA, it’s been very demanding but extremely fun. 
 
I feel Gloscol did well at prepping me for university just by providing me creative briefs and giving me the resources to produce my own work.  

I feel without those 2 years of experience I would have been lost at university. 

I’m pleased to share my latest showreel with some of the things I’ve been able to work on.

My time at Gloucestershire College was amazing. I really enjoyed the Level 3 Early Years course that I did. They have a great balance of placement time and lesson time. I especially loved placements – this is a great opportunity to put your theory which you learn in lesson time into practice and really learn in-action. 

Doing this course helped to direct me into my career path now. The lecturers on the early years team are incredibly supportive and really want the best for you, I couldn’t have done it without the support from them! 

Since leaving GC I have gone onto Norland to pursue my dream of becoming a Norland Nanny. Norland offers incredible degree and diploma teaching in all areas of theory of children development, but also practical skills needed to work as a nanny, such as sewing and food and nutrition lessons.

This is all alongside amazing hands-on placement opportunities, such as family, nursery and hospital placements.
