“I went back to work after maternity leave but was unhappy with my job as an HR Manager. I spoke to the College about going back into education to study and they suggested I combine this with my love of wildlife and nature by joining the Access to HE - Applied Science course. I gave two weeks’ notice to leave my job and I haven’t looked back since.
“The course was very intensive plus I had some personal challenges but the College and the tutors fully supported me throughout, even when I thought I was failing. During the course, I gained Merit and Distinction grades which enabled me to gain a place at my first choice university to study Conservation and Ecology.
“I would fully recommend anyone to do the same as the course has opened doors for me. I will now be able to pursue a career working in ecology or the environment which will suit me much better than an office-based role.”
Course: Access to HE Diploma (Science)
