5 years ago Hayley Little completed the Access to Higher Education Diploma in Engineering and bagged a place at university to study for an integrated Masters degree in Chemical Engineering.
This summer Hayley graduated with a first class honours Master’s degree in in Chemical Engineering and secured her first graduate job at SABIC Corporate as a Graduate Process Engineer, just one hour after completing her degree!
Hayley said “When I found that I had been offered my first Engineering job I was over the moon! I had handed in my dissertation just one hour before the interview so I was shocked when I found out that I had been successful.
“Before I started my Access Diploma I was working in a string of dead end jobs but Middlesbrough College changed my life. My Access Diploma gave me a host of transferrable skills and the confidence to pursue my dream career in Engineering.
“The College is fantastic. My tutors supported me throughout my studies and the facilities are outstanding. I also made friends for life on my course and we pushed each other to achieve and succeed. The course itself was also great. I gained a wide range of skills, experience and knowledge which helped me enormously at university and helps me today to make decisions in the workplace.
“I would definitely recommend studying for an Access Diploma at Middlesbrough College! The course has given me the skills I need to succeed and I can’t thank Middlesbrough College enough for their support.”
