Luke King

Course: A-Levels (Classical Civilisation, English Literature & History)

Previous school: Parkside Academy

Luke was drawn in by the College’s friendly atmosphere and open plan campus.

He said:

“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.
