“In the first year, I didn’t attend or participate in classes very well. I changed my attitude and I increased my grade from a Pass to a Merit, which enabled me to progress to the HND. I have since topped-up my HND to a BSc (Hons) Degree in Police and Law Investigation and am now studying an MSc in Human Resource Management. Being at College has made me more ambitious and confident in my own abilities, and it gave me a focus and direction that I didn’t have before.”
