I thoroughly enjoyed my course as it offered a wide selection of modules with the depth to keep on learning. The smaller class sizes are a great advantage at the University Centre and these allowed for a better learning environment, and also for far greater student tutor engagement.

"I would 100% recommend the University Centre and this course to others. The teaching staff are great, and this also included the wider support staff that you may not necessarily see day-to-day on your course.

"I’m working towards a job teaching in the area of my subject at either Foundation or Higher Education level. My ambition is to help as many as possible gain the highest qualification they can achieve, and help shape people to become the best person they can."
