“I was nervous about returning to education but I can safely say it was the best thing I have ever done. Everyone was so friendly and the smaller class sizes suited me.
My advice to others is to attend an open day and speak to the tutors and careers staff about their options.
After researching the course, I learnt that it was only a few hours a week. I could fit study around my full-time job and family life, so I decided to apply for it.
I saw it as my opportunity to gain a formal qualification and improve my career prospects. It's been 15 years since I did an assignment, so the idea of doing that was a bit daunting. It felt good once I'd completed it.
A huge sense of achievement. I am looking forward to graduation and starting my degree in October.”
