When I was in sixth form, I was lucky enough to hear about the Nottingham Potential Summer School. As part of the programme, I got the opportunity to experience a week as a university student. Coming to university was not something I was always certain about, but by the end of the week I just wanted to stay! I was safe in the knowledge that Nottingham was the place for me and more importantly, I had experiences and made friends that I’ll always remember. I left feeling inspired and I realised that attending university is achievable if I work hard. It also highlighted all the countless extracurricular activities it has to offer. Whatever you think about university, I would 100% recommended you to check it out!
