To mark British Science Week (9 – 18 March 2018) the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London (CONEL) has launched a series of inspirational blogs by students.
British Science Week, run by the British Science Association is a 10-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
CONEL was named England’s number one college for student satisfaction in the FE Choices Learner Satisfaction Survey 2016/17 and has an overall pass-rate of 91.9%.
Students Eimante Balaisyte, 18, Fardeen Jisan, 16, Veselin Bakiev, 19, and Leshaye Inniss, 21, have shared their thoughts on studying at the college in their #MyCONEL blogs.
Eimante, who is studying an Applied Science 90 Credit Diploma Level 3, and hopes to study nutrition or food science at university.
She said: “What I love most about CONEL is that everyone is so friendly and the help they give in preparing me well for university.
“The teachers treat me like an adult, they help me with any questions and they really push me to achieve to my full potential.”
Fardeen enrolled on an Engineering 90 Credit Diploma Level 3 and his ambition is to become an aerospace engineer.
He said: “I’ve always been interested in engineering and the course sounded really good. I enjoy coming up with ideas and using computer design software.”
Veselin is planning to study a computer science degree at university when he finishes his IT Extended Diploma Level 3.
“A friend recommended the College as a great place to study. It’s challenging but in a good way and I am learning a lot and enjoying the group project work,” he said.
Leshaye, 18, is studying for her GCSE Mathematics and her main course is Creative Digital Media Production First Extended Certificate Level 2.
She said: “I have more time to study than when I was at school. The extra revision sessions have definitely improved my maths skills.
