Studied: Access to Higher Education Diploma in Mixed Media

Destination: Studying a BA in Human, Social and Political Science at the University of Cambridge

In the space of a year, Alfie Lambert went from working as a security guard to studying at Cambridge University after taking an Access to Mixed Media course at the College.

He decided to make the career change after being told by his girlfriend that he was wasting his talent. Now, after taking the Access to Higher Education Diploma in Media, Alfie is studying a degree in Human, Social and Political Science at the world-renowned university.

He said: “Growing up I did not gel with school at all and I did not study any A Levels. I have always been passionate about politics and music though.

“I could not have done what I am doing without the support and encouragement of my tutor. He taught me to look at issues more broadly - something that I think helps hugely at university.

“I am really enjoying studying at Cambridge, and after my degree I hope to go on to become a journalist for a national newspaper.”
