内弗特' story: "a different path is not a bad path"
四年前, 内弗特’ plans changed last minute on results day, which led her to apply to the University of Worcester through 清算. Now she is celebrating a First-Class Honours Master’s degree 而且 praised the experience that led her to her current path.
“Looking back on the experience, 这是真的, 手放在心上, the best thing that could ever have happened to me,” said the 22-year-old. “Since then, coming to Worcester, I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for here.”
Neve was accepted onto the Drama 而且 Performance course, but auditioned 而且 was transferred to the 巡回戏剧综合大师 degree after her first year.
She said the call she had on the day her results came out was crucial to putting her at ease with her future 而且 knowing what to expect 而且 do next. “The fact that I got to talk to an actual lecturer about the experience, 关于我要修的课程, 可能是对我最有帮助的事,妮芙说. “She was able to outline the next three years of my life in a five-minute phone call. She was so lovely 而且 reassuring. Getting that call from her, it just put me at ease rather than someone who didn’t really know that much about the actual modules 而且 course I would be studying.” She said the lecturer’s experience 而且 her tips 而且 advice helped her to relax. “Worcester were just absolutely fantastic,” she added. “A soon as the phone call ended, I had emails 而且 stuff through the post to start getting me excited about coming to Worcester 而且 it just reassured me about everything that was going to be happening from now on.”
“My advice to anyone going through 清算 is just to take a breath,她说. “This could end up being the best step you ever take 而且, 就因为你选择了不同的道路, 不代表这是条坏路, it’s just an alternative one. As long as you put the effort in 而且 you’re passionate about what you’re doing 而且 your course 而且 you love it then you can only blossom here.”
She advised prospective students in the lead up to results day to keep their options open. “Do a little bit of research into the 清算 process - at Worcester 而且 at other universities as well,她说. “Just have those numbers ready. Hope for the best 而且 that you get the results you want, but sometimes life doesn’t always go the way we planned 而且 just to have other options 而且 other paths available to you can end up being the best thing you ever did.”
During her time at University Neve got heavily involved in student activities. 她成为了舞蹈协会的一员, 她做了两年的社交秘书, 而且 also founded a new society, the Worcester Arts Collective, 它汇集了各种艺术学科. She was also a School Rep, representing the views of fellow students to leaders in the University’s 艺术学院. 刚刚完成综合硕士学位, Neve is working as Worcester 学生’ Union Vice President for Student Activities, after winning the election.
“I’m the first in my family on both sides to go to university 而且 they’re proud of me, 我为自己感到骄傲,她说. “I don’t think I would have got here if not for Worcester.”
