I would love to go on to study for a degree in something like nutrition. My tutor is currently helping me look at possible university courses that might suit me. After that I would either like to find a job in that field or possibly go into teaching. The whole feeling around campus is a really positive one. All the teachers are supportive and want us to do well.
