I’ve had a really positive experience at the UTC and I am so pleased to go on to such a prestigious university. I love engineering because it’s creative and involves problem solving. I’ve been determined to aim high and reach my goal no matter how challenging that might be.

Determined UTC Sheffield student Mitchell Duncan had set his heart on studying at a prestigious local university.

Now his studies and hard work have paid off. The 18-year-old is going on to the University of Sheffield to study a Degree in Mechanical Engineering.

Mitchell has completed a technical qualification in engineering at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus, on Matilda Street, achieving a distinction* grade.

He also took three A Levels and achieved an A* grade in maths and two B grades in further maths and physics. He said: “I feel really pleased. I’m still a bit shell shocked! I’m very excited to be able to go onto my first choice of university.”

Mitchell explained: “I’ve had a really positive experience at the UTC and I am so pleased to go on to such a prestigious university. I love engineering because it’s creative and involves problem solving. I’ve been determined to aim high and reach my goal no matter how challenging that might be.”

He added: “I’ve grown up on a council estate in a single parent household. It’s important to me to stay in Sheffield and staying local will also reduce some of the associated costs of studying for a degree.”
