‘I chose City of Oxford College because it offered my course as a full time option, which really suited me.
‘The quality of teaching has been exemplary, although the work-based learning has taken some adjusting to, because it is so different from any other experience. I have enjoyed the learning process, as it has challenged me and I have learnt so much that is relevant to my work.
‘I would advise anyone who is thinking about doing this course to come here, as there is so much support available, if you need it. Especially for students like me, who have not studied for a long time.
‘After my studies, I hope to develop my current role and possibly look for a different job with more responsibility, as I feel I will be prepared.’
