Religious Studies FAQs

Hiba Religious Studies

A-level Religious Studies Student: Hiba

'I chose to study Religious Studies because I've always been fascinated by religion and people's perspective of it. Studying Religious Studies has taught me the beliefs, practices, values, and doctrines of people around the world. It also taught me to write a balanced essay and talk confidently about my knowledge. After St Brendan's, I am planning on completing a Teaching Apprenticeship and then go on to University the year after.'

Hiba Studied: Religious Studies, Health & Social Care and Sociology

A-level Religious Studies Alumni: Jyles

'Upon leaving St Brendan's I went on a personal training course and qualified as a Personal Trainer. I am also at Bath Spa University studying Religion, Philosophy and Ethics.

My advice to current students would be to take advantage of all the opportunities that college has to offer such as going to workshops or acting on feedback as it all helps.

In ten years time, I hope to be working in the field of International Relations.'

Jyles Studied: Business Studies, Law, Religious Studies, Philosophy
