FOUR CHRIST COLLEGE BRECON STUDENTS ARE CELEBRATING AFTER BEING OFFERED PLACES TO STUDY AT OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITIES.
Aisling Tarpey has received an unconditional offer to read English at Lincoln College, Oxford; Adonijah Airede to study Natural Sciences at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge; Hayato Kaneda to University College, Oxford for Physics; and Kevin Zhao to read Engineering at St Edmund Hall, Oxford.
Adonijah said: “I’ve always wanted to study in the UK, but not anywhere. My parents and I searched for a school that was not only about academia, a place where I would enjoy not only learning, but also everything around that makes up a school: sports, extra-curricular activities – a school with a strong ethos, and that place was Christ College Brecon.”
After her English degree, Aisling is hoping to complete a graduate medicine course, with a view to consultancy and medical law in the long term. Adonijah is thinking of pursuing his education in Natural Science with a PhD, and Kevin want to work as an engineer, or in finance. Hayato is not quite sure yet, but is confident, that after learning and experiencing life in Oxford, he will be free to choose.
