Describing her time on campus as positive, optimistic and encouraging, Amy chose to study at Sunderland College to gain the the skills, information and qualifications needed to achieve her dream of becoming a paramedic.

Access to Higher Education (Health Sciences).

I chose the course that suited the entry requirements of my chosen university course.

As a pathway to university.

The information and skills it provided which would be useful when going to university.

The help my tutor Amy gave me. From helping with my UCAS application to giving me the confidence in myself.

All round it was a good atmosphere. It was still positive even with the uncertainty of lockdown.

I am currently studying BSc Paramedic Science at Teesside University.

It was a stepping stone to my chosen career path.
