Laraib said: “I chose to study my A-Levels at Blackburn College straight after I completed my GCSEs with the College. They were brilliant in supporting me to achievement with my GCSEs, especially with me moving from Italy, and the staff also helped me pick the A-Level subjects that were personally suitable.

“I also chose Blackburn College because it was so close to where I lived at the time. The locality was perfect.

“The thing I have enjoyed the most about the College is that everyone was friendly and helpful. The overall experience was amazing, not just the learning side of things, but how to communicate with other people as well. You make new friends and learn so many new things.”

She added: “Blackburn College has been really great in preparing me for the future, particularly the tutors. They supported me a with my Personal Statement and even helped me when I decided on an aspiring career change from Medicine to Accounting.

“They are there for you throughout application processes and show you the best pathways. I had plenty of options available to me just in case I didn’t go to University – things like Apprenticeships.

“However, I will be going to University to study an Accounting and Finance Degree!”
