Raechel Dale

For Raechel, studying an Access to Higher Education course on psychology, sociology, social policy and criminology has proved to be the gateway to a place studying Forensic Psychology at Staffordshire University.

With the current job market being difficult, Raechel found stiff competition for the jobs she applied for. Her experience at college and then university will give her an extra edge over other candidates, and help her to get a job related to her degree subject.

Raechel says:
“I enjoyed my time at college - it gave me a massive confidence boost and helped me to have more belief in myself that I can do whatever I put my mind to.

I found the topics interesting and the support from the tutors excellent, but most of all, I made friends with people in the same position as me and so throughout college and now uni, we have encouraged and supported each other through the tough times and celebrated together through the good times. Also, the sense of achievement and increased self-belief from completing the course was great.”
