Computing & IT

Tell us about yourself.

I came to Coulsdon College as I really wanted to do the BTEC Extended Diploma in IT‑, which wasn’t on offer at Riddlesdown.

What are your plans after College?

I’ve been offered a place at Southbank University to study BSc Business Information Systems, a four year course with a one year placement in Business. I’m hoping to secure a Basketball scholarship to help me with my tuition fees.

How did you get into Basketball?

I’m 6’4”, so it seemed an obvious sport for me!I played a bit at school, but I’ve really stepped it up since coming to College. We play every day at College and train as a team twice a week. The Urban Ballers Basketball coaches are really skilful and we are privileged to be trained by an ex-Olympian.

So you spend a lot of time playing basketball?

Yes. In addition to the training, I keep my fitness up by running every morning and by going to the gym twice a week.

So do you get much time to study?

Yes! I have to work hard and make good use of my time. It helps that I love my lessons and the teachers are great. They’ve really helped me focus on my work and made me realise I need to work hard in order to achieve at the highest level.

What’s the best thing about College?

The people! I’ve met lots of different types of people, many of whom have become great friends.
