Emily Gray

Peak Award Winner Emily now studying for master’s in Australia

My lecturers were fantastic! They were really passionate about their subject, particularly psychology lecturer Glyn Pickering, who motivated me and pushed me to achieve more than I thought I was capable of. I also got great support at Derby College in applying for university and higher education. I was able to go on a residential trip to experience Oxford University, and received specialist and individual help with my application, personal statement and interview preparation.

Psychology PhD student Heather owes love of her subject to Derby College A level tutors

My psychology tutors were great. Glyn Pickering was such a good teacher and I completely fell in love with the subject because of the way it was taught. At Derby College the tutors put us first. It was all about student development. There was such a happy, supportive atmosphere and I've come to the view that choosing where to study for A levels shouldn't be based on league tables alone.
