Studying the IB at Felsted

Annika Hansen (Felsted School, 2016-18)

Before Felsted, I never really thought of my future, I figured I would take everything as it comes and go with it. But since Felsted, I see how much I’ve changed - that I want to explore things, get into interesting debates with people, especially those who don’t share my opinion and I’m really happy and grateful for that. 

I’ve learned a lot during my time in the UK - not just academically, as the IB Diploma covered that area quite well - but also about how I can do my bit to make a difference and how if I want to see change it is on me to bring it about. I have learnt to be confident about the things I do and to stand up for what I believe is right, but also to accept it when I make a mistake and to work hard to improve.

From my decision to follow a career in Human Rights, my interest into everything that is going on out there in the world and now of course the step to study at King’s - ultimately I owe it all to Felsted.

To the teachers, who each and every one were so passionate about their subject - it was 100% contagious; the house staff who really did make Felsted a home away from home and of course to Mr Townsend and Mr Masters who inspired us students to lead by example, to keep both an open mind and to pay attention to not just us and our lives, but also to care and look out for others, that turning a blind eye won’t fix anything.

I can assure you that I am not alone in thinking like this, we would do it all over again without hesitation. I definitely don’t regret a single minute of the two years and look back at them as both the most important and best decision of my life.

It is such a relief to know where the road is headed. While I only have a vague plan for what’s to come after university I know that King’s will hold many great opportunities that demand to be explored.
