Sound of science
Simon has an offer to read BSc Biological Sciences at Imperial College London. He is currently studying A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics within our Sixth Form.
“During my time at Westminster City School, I’ve found my A Level Biology to be one of my most interesting courses. Biology offers such a wide variety of topics to study that I find deeply fascinating. I am now keen to study this subject even further, at university, and to further expand my knowledge and understanding.
“While in Year 12, I undertook a wonderful placement at Imperial College London, which allowed me to see the ground-breaking research being undertaken there. I had already been interested in a future career in research and, through this placement, I gained a first-hand understanding of what life as a researcher would be like.
“I remain very grateful to Westminster City School, particularly the amazing staff like Ms Adebanjo (from our Science Department) who arranged such a rewarding and useful placement for me. I am now looking forward to joining Imperial College London, and furthering my scientific knowledge, as an undergraduate student.”
Imperial College London focuses exclusively on study related to science, engineering, medicine, and business. It is one of the world’s top institutions and, in 2019, was ranked ninth globally in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Notable alumni, students and staff include 14 Nobel Laureates and three Fields Medallists.
Over 90% of Westminster City School’s current Year 13 have applied to start university in September 2020, receiving offers across a range of courses and institutions, both in and out of London. We are exceptionally proud of our young people and, over the coming weeks, will feature many of our sixth formers talking about their exciting journey towards university.
