18-year-old Adam Bellis is celebrating achieving a place at University of Salford to study a degree in Cyber Security after his great BTEC results.
Adam achieved Distinction, Merit, Merit in BTEC Applied Science. He said: “I feel really relieved about my results because I got what I needed to get into my top choice and I’m really happy.”
As well as his interest in Computing, Adam also played badminton alongside his studies at the UTC. Talking of the UTC he said: “I moved to the UTC because it was a better environment for me to learn in. There were smaller class sizes and more specialised learning.”
He is looking forward to starting at University of Salford in September: “I’m really excited to go to university and to start my course. The UTC has prepared me well for it with the different styles of learning – both practical and written – and I’ve been able to develop key skills such as practising problem solving which is a big part of my degree.”
To anyone else thinking of studying at the UTC, Adam said: “I think the UTC is really good. If you want to learn and push yourself then you should go.”
