Why did you choose to study at Writtle University College?
At the open day the staff spoke of their students research and work with such passion, they seemed to know their students well and were genuinely proud of their achievements. They also had a good sense of humour and were a close knit team which created a very warm atmosphere.
What does Writtle University College mean to you?
The three years that I spent at uni were the best three years of my life. As a mature student I had many worries about fitting in with the younger crowd and being out of education for a number of years (and never being particularly successful in my previous academic attempts). But all of those worries quickly went away.
The lecturers are so supportive, always happy to help on a one to one basis. The smaller campus compared to most university standards creates a community atmosphere with a great student union that are always ready to hear your concerns or suggestions.
I have met some amazing lifelong friends from all around the world at Writtle and the added opportunity to learn about other cultures only enriched my university experience.
What did you particularly enjoy about your course?
For me the best feature of the course was learning about the science relating to horses in an academic setting and then applying the knowledge in a practical lecture. This gave me the skills to use my knowledge in the ‘real world’ rather than just in a lab or a classroom.
