A Level student Aimee Wood is currently studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths at MC6 and has just accepted an offer to study Medicine and Surgery at Newcastle University this coming September!
Aimee, who has always dreamed of studying medicine, completed the Partners Academic Summer School at Newcastle University last year. The programme gave her an insight into student life there and helped her to decide it was the place for her.
She said, “Coming to Middlesbrough College was a fresh start for me, and it was a big change, but the transition felt so smooth because it is such a friendly place. I love the independence you get here, and you’re treated more like adults.
“The workload was also a massive jump from school, but my teachers really helped to guide me. The lessons are very interesting and engaging and I’ve loved coming to College here.
“I attended an Open Event when I was in Year 10 and from then I had my heart set on coming here. I loved the whole vibe of the College, the facilities were great, everyone was so welcoming, and I just felt like Middlesbrough College offered something different.
“There is also a great opportunity to meet new people at College, coming from Darlington I didn’t know many people before I started, but I have been able to make new friends and even met my best friend here! The transport available to Middlesbrough College means that you meet people from all over the Tees Valley and beyond, people you may not otherwise have met.
“I’m over the moon after receiving my offer from Newcastle University. Medicine has always been my dream, and attending the summer school there only confirmed it for me. I got the opportunity to hold a cadaver heart and watch a live surgery online through the Sutton Trust, which was a really amazing experience!
“The careers team here are fabulous and they have helped guide me through the whole application process.
“I would 1 million percent recommend studying at Middlesbrough College, it’s a really comfortable and supportive environment.”
