Paul Isles

  • Studying Chemistry at Manchester Metropolitan University
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science

Paul chose to study at Hopwood Hall College after his first visit, where the tutors and facilities made him feel like the course was perfect for him.


Whilst studying Applied Science, Paul learned high level laboratory skills to fulfil his ambitions of working in drug research. But he also points out the friends he made as a large part of how the course benefitted him.

“Studying my science course meant I could progress to University and pursue a career in drug research. Hopefully working in that industry will mean I can save lives and help people.

“To any students currently studying, the best lesson I learned is to stay on top of your work and keep at it. It will be hard, but there is always a way past obstacles – especially if you ask your tutors for help.”
