GC helps you engage with the real world, doing something meaningful you can be proud of. Yes, I was part of that and it was amazing!
It was a great opportunity to use & build on skills I had learned during my first year.
GC increased my confidence and team work skills, allowing me to study subjects I have a keen interest in outside my degree subject.
I would really recommend GC for anybody who wants to stretch themselves academically, while having a great time with other like-minded people.

Really being able to make a difference and leave a lasting legacy.
