“My Access to Higher Education Diploma in Business helped me to progress to Durham University. I’m now studying for a degree in Marketing and Management.

 “I’m in my first year at Durham University and I absolutely love my course. I’m hoping to pursue a career in digital marketing because of the higher demand for e-commerce. I love being creative so this is definitely the right career path for me- I would absolutely love to be a brand manager and work within the fashion industry overseas!

 “The Access to Higher Education course at Middlesbrough College gave me a taster for each aspect of business, so I was able to figure out what I enjoyed the most. I originally thought I wanted a degree in accounting but I surprised myself and fell in love with marketing. The course has been so helpful because a lot of the material is being repeated at University so I feel like I’m on the same page as everyone else, even though I never studied A-levels.  

“I would 100% recommend studying the Access to Higher Education course, I almost feel like I’ve got a head start on my degree compared to students who didn’t study business as an A-level!”
