Mehreen Quraishi - BA (Hons) History & Politics

  • Studied: First Class Honours - BA (Hons) History & Politics

“I studied my A-Levels at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School and took A-Levels in History, Politics, Classics, German and General Studies. I received 2 A*s and 3 As and was all set to study at London School of Economics (LSE).

“However, right at the last minute I decided to go to University Centre at Blackburn College and applied through Clearing. I had to phone up London School of Economics and let them know I wouldn’t be going."

“My brother also studied BA (Hons) History & Politics at University Centre at Blackburn College and had a great time – he got a First Class Honours, too, and had told me about how great the course was. That personal recommendation meant a lot to me.

“The BA (Hons) History & Politics degree is validated by Lancaster University which really swayed my decision as it means I could live at home, save on the costs of expensive London accommodation, but still get a UK top 10 degree.

“My parents left the decision to me but were glad I chose to stay close to home. Other friends tell me that their lecturers at other Universities don’t know their names – at the University Centre at Blackburn College it wasn’t like that. The seminar groups are ideal for discussions which especially is great for Politics as it allows you to thrash out ideas in sensible sized groups."

"I would really recommend the University Centre at Blackburn College to anyone. I’ve got a First Class Honours degree and originally intended having a year out before progressing onto a Masters degree in Modern History. However, I have since got a full-time job at Clitheroe Royal Grammar School as a Cover Supervisor and I am considering doing a PGCE. I am loving my new role."

Places are still available on BA (Hons) History & Politics starting in September. Phone 01254 29 25 94 to speak to a member of our Clearing team.
