Tom said “Middlesbrough College is a fantastic place to study and I am over the moon that I am staying here next year to study for my degree in Sports Therapy and Injury Rehabilitation as it is my dream to become a Sports Therapist!
"I didn’t want to move away from home for my degree and Middlesbrough College has a fantastic reputation. I have had such a good experience studying here and I have good relationships with all my tutors. I know that they will push me to succeed and support me. Plus it’s a bonus that it is a lot cheaper than other universities and I can save some money by living at home!
"During my time at College I was part of the Football Academy which was unreal. We won the league in my first year and came third this year. The coaching I received was brilliant and I have made friends for life.”
*Tom is now in his first year of Fd Sports Therapy with Rehabilitation at Middlesbrough College.
"My Level 3 Sports BTEC really helped to prepare me for higher education. I'm able to pick up a lot of the subjects quickly as they link to things covered during my previous course.
"The teachers are really knowledgeable and a few of them taught me previously so settling in took no time at all. I wasn't really certain on moving away from home for university, so studying HE at the College was the ideal route for me.
"I feel really comfortable here and there's a nice environment.
"As well as gaining further knowledge on the course, we also get a number of placement opportunities which really helps to give us hands-on experience ahead of employment.
"I'd definitely recommend coming to Middlesbrough College for higher education!"
