Pete

I’m Pete and I live in Ipswich. I’m currently helping my second child, George, with his university application. My eldest child, Ali (Alice), began her studies in Sports Psychology at Loughborough University in 2016 and graduated in 2019. She is now doing a one year postgraduate course in Sports Journalism.

I went to university in the 1980s and although some aspects of the application process are similar, certain things, such as student finance, have changed significantly with student loans replacing grants. I believe that everyone who has the ability should be encouraged to consider applying for university. I would like to help students and their families who are thinking about doing so. I am a retired civil servant and enjoy watching Ipswich Town, playing 5 a-side football, listening to music and watching live comedy.
