Posted on: October 11th 2019Alumni News

 DSC0728We caught up with alumnus Lilly Green who graduated from the University of Hull this year. Lilly achieved a fantastic first class degree in Sport and Exercise Nutrition BSc (Hons).

 

What was your biggest achievement at university?

Attaining a first class degree! And being the first in my family to attend university.

What did you enjoy most about your course at the university?

The amount of new opportunities you can get involved in! For me working with a PhD research team was a highlight of my course. I was able to learn new biochemistry techniques and apply them to real research.   

What advice would you give to our Sixth Form students?

Start early! Never compare yourself to your classmates, always against yourself, that way you’re always improving and not trying to be a big fish in a small pond.

How did All Saints’ help you in reaching your goals for university?

All Saints' gave me a second chance, letting me retake biology during an additional year. Also, there was support for me to fill in application forms and complete my personal statement whilst at school.
