After successfully completing his A-Levels at Priestley College, Peter went to the Royal Holloway University of London. He also spent a year at the University of California in the USA.

He now lives in Madrid where he is a marketing director for an international media agency. Peter hopes to one day launch his own company or become a CEO.

“The tutors at Priestley were really helpful, especially when it came to my uni applications for California which required a lot of robust academic referencing,” he said.

“Apart from the academic side, they taught me it’s great to question things which ultimately led to many doors opening – as people value your opinion as well thought-through.

“Priestley is a gateway to many other things, and not only university. You learn much more there than just your subject as you are an adult and treated as such. So you start to learn how things work because the tutors don’t avoid challenging questions – they embrace them.”
