Student quits to take up apprenticeship
A STUDENT from Southville has quit university after two years of study to take up an apprenticeship.
Lucy Gilbert, 21, followed her creative ambition and began a fine art degree in 2010.
But half way through her second year, she realised university was not for her and started an apprenticeship instead.
Lucy said: "I found university increasingly difficult, studying and trying to work at the same time. The pressure got too much and I realised I couldn't carry on so I started looking for jobs."

While working as an administration assistant for a home improvement company, Lucy chose to go back to college to do an apprenticeship.
She is now five months into a NVQ level 2 course in business administration which she is taking as an apprentice HR administrator at the Sheiling School in Thornbury.
Lucy said: "I am so glad I looked for an apprenticeship. After two interviews I came to Sheiling School and knew immediately that I wanted to work here. I was so happy when I received the news that I had the job.
"I really enjoy working here. It doesn't feel like I'm different to any of the other employees. I have a good amount of responsibility which allows me to have pride in my work and I feel like a fully integrated team member. I am now hoping to stay on and undertake the next level."
