I decided to study politics and IR after becoming increasingly interested in how the media portrays politics. I was a bit confused if I wanted to study politics or journalism at the time. Since deciding to do my course, I’ve been able to successfully understand the world around me a lot more. My understanding of HE while at school was limited, I knew of some routes into HE/FE but I didn’t understand a lot. I was a LIFT OFF core pupil and then volunteered with them since I went off to University in 2017. I’m hoping to help young people understand that although they might not get the grades in school (I didn’t!) they can still attend university via alternative routes. I’m hoping to study a PGDE in Modern Studies to teach children how important understanding not just Scotland but the wider world around us.
