Richard Baldwin

The Access to Computing course has set me up really well and made me confident. The support at Middlesbrough College has been fantastic, especially my tutor and course co-coordinator. The course has opened a lot of different pathways and options for me.

Success stories
Cameron Flaki

My tutor is the best, very supportive, very encouraging and very caring. We get regular 1-1 conversations and advice.

The Access course is much more focused than a year 0 degree at university. I would recommend an Access course to anyone wanting to come back to education.  You learn how to do referencing, research, how to work to deadlines and how to structure assignments. I feel prepared to go to university.
