Andy Jones achieved a First Class Honours in Business and Marketing BA (Hons)
“Getting a First feels amazing, it’s fantastic to see all the hard work and late nights paid off. It’s also a great pleasure knowing that I did my best and got rewarded for it.”
“The sports facilities at Worcester Uni are fantastic and really helped me develop as an athlete alongside my studies,” he said. “Studying a reasonably theoretical course, it was relatively easy to adapt to online learning as it was a similar lecture layout just without the physical presence of people,” said Andy. “The pandemic hit just before final assessments and exams, so it almost made it easier to concentrate on the upcoming deadlines as a way to stay busy.”
Alongside his degree, he was also training with the Welsh Badminton National Team and managed to win four Senior international caps playing against Portugal and then Denmark, Switzerland and Latvia in the European Men’s Team Championships.
The 23-year-old is currently on a graduate scheme at Renault UK and hopes to work his way up to a high corporate level in the automotive industry. Alongside this, his aim is to work towards qualifying for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, playing badminton for Wales.
