I live near Diss and my children both attended the local schools. My daughter studied Biomedical Science and is now working as a Biomedical Scientist at the new Papworth Hospital in Cambridge. She is applying to study a degree in Medicine either in the UK or Georgia. My son is finishing his Masters in Mechanical Engineering – loving it and is about to start his final project with a UK sports car manufacturer.
We found the application process for university straightforward and the transition from home to university was not so hard. The only hard bits were studying for A Levels, making the right choices early on, as well as an awareness of some pitfalls such as if a student wants to change course after they’ve started. I want to pass on my experience to others who might find the whole process daunting.
