Over the past 12 years, over sixty students from the Media PLC Course at EVC have progressed to Aberystwyth University to continue their studies.
In May of this year, through a special agreement with the Welsh University, three more PLC courses have now been linked: Legal Studies; Sport and Recreation and Pre 3rd Level Science. It is hoped that over the next two years, 25-30 students per year will travel across the water to continue their studies, making EVC the biggest provider of students in the world to Aberystwyth.
This year sees the biggest influx of students, eleven in total, ten from media and one from Legal Studies going to Wales. Some of these students are in the photo above. Leanne Byrne, a past student of Mr. Sharkey’s class graduated in July, and is coming in on a weekly basis for teaching practice specialising in Film.
There will be a general talk for students from the relevant courses in the next few days about Aberystwyth University. It is hoped that Childcare will be the next course to be linked.
