Course Studied: Marine Biology & Ecology National Diploma
From: Truro, Cornwall
Falmouth Marine School came to my school and I really like the sound of the Marine Biology & Ecology course. I'd been to other colleges but I couldn't decide what to do or which A-levels to take.
The National Diploma turned out to be the perfect course for me as doing A-levels involves lots of exams whereas this is more course work based. It is practical hands-on learning which is what I wanted.
As a result of doing the course I've become interested in photography and joined the college's Journalism Photography Club. Once I finfish the course I'd like to go to university to study something along the lines of historical or wildlife photography. I'm going to take a gap year first and do some work experience with different media organisations. I'm not quite sure what degree to study so hopefully the gap year will make up my mind!
