COMPETITION WINNERS ARE PREPARED FOR UNIVERSITY PROGRESSION
Two former Bury College students have thanked the college for awarding them with equipment which will add great value to their future studies.
Laura Jones and Jade Mottershead both completed their Bury College studies in July 2017. The girls returned to the college to collect their examination results and entered a competition to win an iPad and a MacBook. Out of 960 entries, Laura and Jade were announced the winners and awarded their prizes which they both believe will help them greatly during their time at university.
A Level student Jade, who achieved a B grades in English Literature and English Language and a C grade in Media Studies, has progressed onto study TV and Radio Production at the University of Salford. The former Tottington High School pupil said, “I was thrilled to find out that I had won! I can do all my Adobe editing on the MacBook. I had actually been looking into buying one so I feel really lucky! I loved everything about Bury College; the people and the tutors were all great.”
Former The Elton High School pupil Laura has moved onto Manchester Metropolitan University to study Sport Management after securing triple distinction stars in Level 3 BTEC Sport. Laura added, “I couldn’t believe it when I was told that I had won. I will be able to use the iPad during my lectures to make notes. I would definitely recommend for other Bury College students to complete questionnaires as it only took two minutes and winning this prize will help me out so much.”
