Ryan's story: Future Quest Programme
I am eternally grateful to have participated in the Future Quest programme during my post-16 journey toward higher education. My Future Quest mentor supported my application to a summer school, provided me with outstanding guidance and advice relating to drafting personal statements and applying for student finance, and supported me in communicating with university tutors and advisors to get the best outcome possible. Future Quest also provided me with the most valuable work experience placements, which allowed me to develop important skills valued by prospective employers, such as time management, leadership, teamwork and communication skills. I was accepted at my first-choice, University of Bristol, to study Religion and Theology in August 2019 and graduated in 2022.
