Nicholas Cunniffe, BSc Economics
Prior to university, I attended Sir John Deane’s sixth form College in Northwich, Cheshire, where I studied mathematics, French, geography and economics. Outside of the classroom, I also played football for the college first team.
I chose the University of Bristol as I had visited the City of Bristol on a number of occasions in the past, and I have always liked the city itself. I also knew a number of friends who had studied at Bristol in the past who loved it! In addition, I felt that I would enjoy the particular modules of the economics course at Bristol.
At A-level, my favourite courses were mathematics and economics. Having looked at the economics course at Bristol, I felt that this course offered a good blend of maths and economics, and therefore I would enjoy the course.
I would highly recommend coming to the University of Bristol. I’ve had a great first year and made friends from all over the country. There’s always something to do at Bristol, and I’m always kept busy; be it completing assignments or passing time with one of Bristol’s societies. In fact, during my first year, I represented the University’s first team in the football varsity match – and we won!
Beyond university, I’m hoping for a career in the finance industry. I think that my course provides a good basis to learn some of the skills required to work in this area and be successful.
