Ben Jobson:"Being a part of the Sutton Trust US Programme was an absolute privilege. It was an experience that I will never forget. I was chosen as one of 200 students out of an applicant pool of over 1000 to take part. As a member of the programme, I was taken to Boston for a week to experience American culture and what university life is like over there. In total, I visited 7 universities across the week including Harvard and MIT (shown in the picture). Seeing those places in real life was a bit surreal as I only ever expected to see them in films. I am applying to Lafayette College,Pennsylvania in December!"
