Gemma secured a place at university studying occupational therapy following her Access to Science course at the College. She also found a part time role working within the NHS.

" I feel proud to have achieved the grades I did and feel confident that this has helped prepare me in the transition to Uni. I made some fab friends too!

You need to be able to devote your time and effort to this course as it is full on and a lot can be required, however, I managed to complete this whilst juggling a part time job, boyfriend and friends. It is all achievable! The tutors are super supportive and I could not have done it without them. We were all like a little access family."
