A Level Graphics, Digital Film and CTEC Art & Design
Career aims: I am really interested in starting my own business as a Graphic Designer.
The College is really central in the City and I knew lots of people who have had a great experience here. It offered all the creative subjects I wanted to do with impressive art facilities.
A Level Photography, CTEC Art & Design and BTEC Applied Psychology
Career aims: I plan to apply to the University of the Arts London to study Fashion Photography, and then progress in this field, possibly as a professional photographer.
When looking around at different colleges, Portsmouth College really stood out for me and gave me the best opportunities. So far I have really enjoyed my experience here and would recommend it to anyone.
A Level Economics, Pure Mathematics and Politics
Career aims: After college, I would like to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at a Russell Group university, then work in Communications within the Civil Service.
My first interaction with Portsmouth College was at an Open Evening. The Principal warmly greeted everyone and the teachers were inviting, engaging and showed a genuine interest in their potential pupils. The timetable was a great asset, with later starts and no trapped time. Everything from the timetable to the classroom displays was meticulously put together, which I can now resolutely say is the definition of Portsmouth College.
A Level English Language, English Literature and Classical Civilisation
Career aims: I'd like to be an English lecturer and freelance writer whilst aiming to be an author as my long term goal.
The campus is easy to get to from anywhere in the City. I liked the layout and the learning environment of the college which helped the transition from school to college much easier. The teachers I spoke to before applying gave me a lot of confidence that I would do well at Portsmouth College.
A Level Law, Economics, Politics and Level 3 Core Mathematics
Career aims: My ambition is to study Law at the University of Bristol or a similar competitive Russell Group university, and then train to be a solicitor.
The extra-curricular opportunities through the E6 Personal Development programme and More Able Students’ programme meant that I felt I’d be able to stand out from the crowd when applying to university. Portsmouth College just felt like the right place for me and I’m glad I made the choice to study here.
A Level Biology, Chemistry and Pure Mathematics
Career aims: I am planning to go on to higher education to study Medicine, and I am currently exploring my university options.
Portsmouth College has a great environment and there were a lot of things that attracted me to the college when I first came to the Open Day and Taster Day events. I really liked the flipped learning aspect as it’s an engaging way of learning which pushes me to my potential. The timetables are very relaxed and well designed to allow students to have time for both social activities and education, and for me it eases the challenge of balancing such complex subjects.
We are delighted that two of our A Level Law students have been successful in their applications to take part in a two-day work experience…
