Rebecca Law

Rebecca decided to take an access course at the college in order to fulfil her ambition of attending university. She is now working towards a dual honours degree in chemistry and biochemistry at Keele University.

She says: “I needed the qualification to gain access to university, without which I wouldn’t have been able to follow a career as a chemist.

“I found the tutor support was excellent, and gave me great preparation for learning after ten years away from education. The diploma course gives you the opportunity to access higher education – I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a route to studying at university.”
