Achieving your ambitions at university

Sam Chung is the first in his family to go to university. He tells us how he's found life studying mechanical engineering at Bath.

‘My experience is [the University of Bath is] a very diverse place. There are people from all backgrounds here. As long as you enjoy what you do and you work hard at it, it's definitely possible to achieve whatever you want to achieve.’
