Rasool studied the Access to Higher Education Diploma in Humanities and Social Sciences in 2013. Since he has left Middlesbrough College, Rasool has completed a Psychology degree and is now looking to pursue a Masters degree in Health Psychology.
The Access to HE Diploma was great. The course was such a good opportunity for me and helped me get on to my Psychology degree.
The tutors were very supportive and helped me a lot. Middlesbrough College helped me with my English and I completed an ESOL qualification as English isn't my native language. I also completed a functional skills maths qualification at College which has been really helpful for my future as lots of universities and employers require maths and English.
I wasn't planning to study a Psychology degree at university but the Access course was so interesting and I found the modules in different areas such as Psychology and Sociology really interesting.
I would encourage anyone to study for an Access to HE Diploma. The course prepared me and enabled me to go to university. I believe it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
