Thalia described her time at Sunderland College as very practical, interesting and fun.

She said: “I chose to study my BTEC at Sunderland College because I wanted to focus solely on Engineering and I’ve been able to do just that. I’ve grown my knowledge and have learned about different so many different fields I can go into. The practical elements of my course have really given me an insight into the industry, along with the placements I completed during my course.”

Thalia has progressed to study Engineering at the University of Greenwich.
