Meet our wonderful people

My parents split when I was aged one and a half; my dad wasn’t around much and my mum got primary custody of me. She used to take me to stately homes and National Trust places for days out when I was younger and I realised I enjoyed history. I decided to take it at A Level and I f...

We are often told follow our passions to get a great job or to earn lots of money. However, life can be more than that; we should focus more on what we can do for other people. I came to understand that following my passion is not enough for a happy life, it’s actually by helpi...

In my role as Digital Learning Designer, I work primarily to support our staff in making our online learning materials engaging, accessible and effective. I love learning as much as I enjoy technology, so I feel very fortunate to work in a role where the two meet. If a member of sta...

I previously studied graphic design in 2013 but left after the first year as I realised it wasn’t the career I wanted. In the meantime, I worked in healthcare whilst I figured out what I wanted to do, firstly as a healthcare assistant at Ipswich hospital for two years and then as...

If you spoke to me a year ago and I told you what I thought my university life was going to be, it couldn’t be more different from what it is now. I was doing my Level 3 BTEC at Suffolk New College in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. I had my heart set on doing this as a deg...

I decided during my A Levels that I would study Law, but I didn't know what I wanted to do later. I didn’t get into my first choice university, but I did get my insurance, but that was too close to home for me and I wanted to move away. I looked at the list of universitie...

I always wanted to be a vet and when my mum asked me what I wanted to do, I explained that I wanted to go out and work with the cheetahs and help stop them going extinct. She told me, “that’s not what a vet does, you want to be a Wildlife Conservationist”.  ...
