Achieved: BA (Hons) Health and Applied Social Studies
Where next: Studying for a Professional Graduate Certificate in Education at Nelson and Colne College Group University Centre
“I really enjoyed my three years studying at the University Centre and I would highly recommend it. The tutors are fantastic and very supportive, and I was very pleased to be able to continue my studies here for another year doing my PGCE.
“Initially, I was worried about getting back into education and learning later in life, after having such a long gap since any previous academic study. However, with the support of my amazing tutors and the fantastic library staff, I was soon able to overcome this and began to make excellent progress in my degree. Childcare worries were also an issue, but being able to study for my degree locally made this much easier.
“My degree has allowed me to progress on to going a PGCE and I hope to go into teaching. By going into teaching, I hope to be able to support others in fulfilling their dreams and ambitions. Recent global events have shown everyone just how important those who work within health and social care sectors are in supporting their local communities. As my degree is in health and social studies, I feel fortunate to be able to help others progress within this field.”View all Health and Social Science courses
