Luke was drawn in by the College’s friendly atmosphere and open plan campus.
“The atmosphere at College was very friendly and the facilities were excellent and easy to access. It was a bonus that New College Durham was close to my house.
“New College Durham offered a good range of subjects and I was really interested in some of the Literature and History modules, such as Gothic literature and Tudor rebellions. I enjoyed the lessons as they were consistently well structured and I learnt a lot. My lecturers and tutors were always professional and very supportive.
“I received a lot of support with my university application and personal statement. I did a work placement which was a great addition to both, to help me stand out. I am now studying History at The University of York.”
Luke progressed to The University of York to explore his interest in History further.
A-Levels will enable you to study academic subjects in more depth.
