I loved my time at the University Centre. It gave me the opportunity to meet some amazing friends and I have gained a qualification that has already enabled career progression. The tutors are fantastic and all of the resources available were invaluable.

Being able to study for a degree just one afternoon/evening per week made it achievable for me as I was a single parent with a full-time job. As a single parent, childcare was always a barrier for me too.
