Student aims for the bar

October 10, 2014

A former science student from West Cheshire College is using the skills learnt from her course to achieve her goal of becoming a Barrister specialising in medical law.


Claire Thomas, 21, from Ellesmere Port studied Applied Science and a HNC in Biology at the College before progressing to study Law at the University of Chester.

Claire said: “I really enjoyed studying at the College. My favourite thing was the style of learning as the course was flexible and we did a lot of practical work.

“I enjoyed the Applied Science course so much that I decided to continue with the HNC - it really helped me to make the transition to university.

“During the course we had the opportunity to do placements as well which really helped me learn and develop my skills.

“I decided to study law at university as it is something I have an interest in and I knew I could select medical modules as part of the degree course.

“My long-term career goal is to become a Barrister specialising in medical law.”

Michelle France, Programme Leader for Applied Science at West Cheshire College, said: “Claire was a fantastic and talented student who showed a high level of commitment to her course.

“Claire is a great example that the science course provides you with transferable skills that you can use to get into other professions.

“We wish Claire the best of luck in the future and we look forward to seeing her successful career grow.”
