Reasons for Choice of Courses
Communication and analytical skills I have acquired through the study of my A-Level subjects will be greatly beneficial to me at university stage.
An important factor in my choice of degree course is that of my career intentions. I hope to use my degree to become a Speech Therapist. This career path intrigues me greatly as I have a strong interest in linguistics and the human psyche. Having seen my grandfather recover from a stroke and the effects it has had on his speech has further strengthened my resolve to become a speech therapist. However, I have also chosen other courses that, whilst satisfying my interests in language and linguistics, open up other career possibilities to me, such as teaching.
-I completed my work experience in my local primary school with a Primary 1 class. This gave me an awareness of a teaching environment and an appreciation of what working life is like.
-I also participate in Teaching Practice through my school which enables me to work with Primary 6 pupils.
-I currently work, part-time, as a Healthcare Assistant in Boots the Chemist. I am undertaking a specialised training course for this position in preparation for an examination. My job requires me to interact with members of the public who have come to the Pharmacy with health queries. I then have to recommend suitable medication, whilst taking into account many factors such as their age, symptoms and other illnesses. I feel that this is a very responsible position to have which requires me to be dedicated, attentive and compassionate. Although it is, at times, difficult and challenging, it is very rewarding.

-I am currently reading ‘The Iliad’ by Homer, which gives a wonderful insight into the literature and culture of Ancient Greece, and ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ by Oscar Wilde, which is a novel portraying one man’s perpetual youth alongside his descent into corruption and murder. I am also reading books on the subjects of Philosophy, as this is a strong interest of mine, and Ancient Egypt, as I find this period of history fascinating and presents such a vastly different world to our own.
-I listen to various types of music ranging from orchestral to rock.
I attend live concerts regularly and I also am teaching myself to play the guitar, which I have found difficult but am determined to keep trying.
-I have been a member of the Guiding Association for 9 years. On joining the Guides I received an award for Best New Recruit.
