News: Col­lege stu­dents cel­e­brat­ed at awards

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

Two Not­ting­ham Col­lege stu­dents were named run­ners-up at the Not­ting­ham Post Edu­ca­tion Awards.

Engi­neer­ing stu­dent Matthew Tay­lor and A Lev­el stu­dent Horem Gul attend­ed the awards at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Wednes­day 29 November. 

Matthew was crowned Young Inven­tor of the Year” at the annu­al Made in the Mid­lands annu­al awards in Octo­ber. Matthew is study­ing a Lev­el 3 BTEC Extend­ed in Engi­neer­ing at the College’s High­fields cen­tre. His inven­tion was an acoustic speak­er for a smart­phone because he saw the need to use a speak­er out­side with­out an elec­tri­cal supply.

Horem achieved amaz­ing GCSE grades back in August despite only arriv­ing in Not­ting­ham from Pak­istan a year ago – she grasped Eng­lish from watch­ing Col­in Firth in Pride and Prej­u­dice! Horem moved to Not­ting­ham with her mum and younger sis­ter to join her father who has been work­ing in the UK for the past 10 years. Ambi­tious Horem wants to become a psy­chol­o­gist and is now study­ing A‑levels at High Pave­ment after achiev­ing two A and three B grades (one in English).
