Megan is currently studying Geological Hazards BSc (Hons.) at Portsmouth University  

Megan first applied to East Norfolk Sixth Form College in July 2013. At the time, she was receiving intensive support for her mental health and her education had been, to say the least, troublesome, meaning that her attainment at Level 2 was only minimal. With an obvious aptitude for the subject, Megan opted to study Geography at Level 3, and the college offered her a hybrid programme of Science and Maths at Level 2 alongside Geography, which she accepted. 

Megan excelled academically in her first year of study at EN and quickly progressed onto a full Level 3 course, consisting of Geography, Geology and Environmental Studies, successfully maintaining an A grade profile in all 3 subjects. Megan was able to participate in a college trip to Iceland in 2014, enhancing her knowledge of geography and volcanology. Her determination to succeed in her career aspirations soon became a reality and her application to study BSc (Hons) Geological Hazards at Portsmouth University resulted in a conditional offer for 2016. 

Megan continues to go from strength to strength despite a number of difficulties in her personal life. She is proving to be a young person who, with appropriate support for her Autistic Spectrum Disorder, has set herself ambitious but realistic goals, which her absolute and enviable commitment will enable her to achieve.
