Former Sociology student Rabia;
Studying-BA Sociology and politics at Goldsmiths College University London,
‘I have chosen to study Sociology and Politics as I am interested in women’s rights, especially in Afghanistan. A recent global survey described Afghanistan as one of the worst and most dangerous places to live in the world for women. This degree will provide me with the capacity to produce research which shows the needs and problems I wish to address, and that I can recommend methods for addressing them through social policy’
She is also doing an Applied Accountancy degree alongside her Sociology and Politics degree.
Rabia envisages doing a Masters and PHD upon the completion of her undergraduate degree.
Rosie studied Economics at A Level, she is currently working as a Dividends Administrator at Newton Investment Management Ltd, whilst studying for a Business Management degree.
'When I first chose to study Economics at the beginning of sixth form, I never fully understood how much I would use and need this A Level in my career.
There are continuous circumstances where I have to use my subject knowledge; I often realise how difficult I would find certain tasks if it was not for my economics A Level. In fact it is not only at work where my economics knowledge comes into good use, it provides a greater understanding of the world we live in as well as increasing my awareness of economic events and how this effects everyone – from large organisations to the average supermarket shopper. I have also found that an Economics A Level is highly valued by employers and even lecturers at university, most likely being the reason for my current job role'.
