Wojciech Nikraszewicz, NC and HNC Social Science

Wojciech Nikraszewicz was living in Poland before his family decided to move to Scotland. He initially studied our ESOL before progressing onto our NC Social Science to learn more about Psychology. He recently completed the HNC.

“On the Social Science programmes, you will study a range of subjects from history and politics to sociology, criminology and psychology. I have learned so much about Scotland and the UK and society in general. My favourite thing about studying at Inverness College UHI are the people, both students and staff. They are the most interesting individuals that I have ever met, they are all different and helped me develop my view of the world and supported me in my progression. The lecturers are so kind and make the lessons as interactive as possible for students.

“If you are unsure what to study, I’d recommend Social Science. It allows you to experience so many different subjects and there is a good chance that at least one of those might end up as your cup of tea. If not, there is plenty of other options at the College to choose from, with staff there to help you.”

Wojciech is keen to continue his studies and eventually become a psychiatrist so he can help people struggling with mental health difficulties.
