I look forward to independence and being able to learn about my chosen degree which will hopefully lead me in a path of my choosing.’ Olivia Gerrad.

I’m looking forward to a change in the content I’ll be studying as well as the change in environment, to be put in a setting where I’ll be surrounded by other adults who are just as interested and passionate about psychology as I am. University, to me, is the next step in my studying journey however, it’s also the first step in my psychology journey which I’m very excited about. I think I’m going to learn a lot which will really broaden my knowledge and understanding of the world we live in and that is definitely something I’m looking forward to.’ Ebony Young.

Bishop Druitt College congratulates both successful students.
