Alumni Case Studies


Shivani Govindia

Achieved: BTEC National Diploma in Health and Social Care Level 3 - achieved the highest possible grades (equivalent to 3 A stars)

Now: Studying a Social Sciences degree at the University of Bath

When I attended an interview at Stanmore College I was truly amazed with the learning environment and felt it really suited my academic needs and would bring out the best of my abilities. This decision paid off when I achieved my grades.

I also had so many opportunities to gain experience, such as the Debating Society, the Student Parliament, being elected Vice President of Campaigns and Welfare and as a student governor. These activities gave me the skills and confidence to pursue a degree that includes political and leadership interests.

I am now at Bath University and enjoying the broad nature of my course. After my degree I would like to complete a MA in Political Communication at either Goldsmiths or LSE and looking to the future thereafter as I'd like a career in politics.

My two years at the College were truly enjoyable and the teachers were fantastic.

My experience at Stanmore College has been amazing due to the friendly atmosphere, supportive teachers and state-of-the-art facilities. The College has made me feel more confident. The best thing about College is that there are many activities to participate in and facilities to use when you're on study breaks. You'll never get bored at Stanmore College.

I would recommend this College to other students, due to the excellent teaching. The College also allows students to be comfortable during their free hours.
