If anyone is passionate about their chosen career path and considering applying for an Access to Higher Education course at Middlesbrough College, I would say go ahead a do it!
The skills I’ve learnt have been beneficial to me. I was taught how to reference which helped me at University. The teaching was interactive, and we did a lot of presentations.
I wouldn’t be where I am now without the support and guidance from the team at Middlesbrough College. I would recommend this course without hesitation to anyone considering returning back to education.
The course has 100% played a part in helping me achieve my dreams, I was able to use my theory knowledge during my application process for the police.
