Lisburn girl, Charlotte Slater, has won an education bursary designed to help her continue her higher education since achieving Triple Distinction Stars in the Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Sport from South Eastern Regional College’s (SERC) Lisburn Campus.

Charlotte, 18, is one of 125 students from across the island of Ireland who has been awarded full academic financial support for the duration of their third level studies through the 2019 All Ireland Scholarship Awards. She has just commenced a 3-year BSc in Physiotherapy at the University of East Anglia.

Charlotte said, “To be honest I wasn’t expecting it at all. When I got the phone call, I was speechless – I couldn’t believe it given the strong competition I knew I would be up against. I am hugely thankful for my tutor for nominating me as it will change my entire university experience and has made the hard work worth it.”

Ken Webb, Principal and Chief Executive of SERC said, “We are delighted that Charlotte has been awarded this bursary which will help her achieve her ambitions in higher education and, ultimately, of becoming a fully qualified physiotherapist.

He added, “Charlotte is a fantastic example of a young person who has remained focussed and worked hard to achieve top grades in her BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport at SERC, from which she has progressed to higher education in her chosen discipline.   This bursary is recognition of her academic achievement to date. We congratulate her and wish her every success for the future.”

Established in 2008, the educational scheme, sponsored by JP McManus, is awarded to a minimum of two high-achieving students from each of the 32 counties.   The programme is administered by the Department of Education & Skills and the Department for the Economy with support from the Department of Education, Northern Ireland.
