Access to Science Level 3 - James Francis
Former School: Hartpury College
James is currently studying Geology at Durham University, after progressing from his
Access to Science course at ESC. He knew he wanted to study Science at university, and so chose to study a science-based course at College, that would give him practical skills.
James commented on his time at the College: “the [Access] course taught you how to think
like a scientist. At ESC I learnt skills such as experimental write-up techniques, thinking
outside of the box and always questioning other people’s work. I use these skills all the
time at University and it has made me better in my subject.”
James aspires to become a Consultant Geologist for an engineering/commercial
business once he has graduated from his Degree.
