Destination: University of Cambridge to study Law

City and Islington College A Level student Essak Miah has won a scholarship to study at Cambridge University after excelling in his studies, gaining one A* and two As.

“I am very happy with my results as I am now going to Cambridge University to study Law. I am being sponsored £15,000 by international law firm Trowers & Hamlins for my degree.

He said: “The College has really helped me secure this funding and the careers advisers have given me excellent direction. I come from a working class background; some of my family have been to university, but no one has had an opportunity like this so I am very proud.

“I want to become a lawyer after University and I have already gained a lot of experience at law firms in London. I would really recommend others to come to the College as the teachers are extremely helpful, but I have also really enjoyed independent learning.”
