Andrew Richardson - BSc (Hons) Computing - 1st Class Honours

  • Studied: BSc (Hons) Computing

"After working full time for 10 years after leaving education I realised that completing a degree would help me progress into the career of my dreams - computer programming.  At first I found returning to study challenging yet very rewarding and I knew I had made the right decision. 

"I chose to study at the University Centre at Blackburn College as the tutors seemed very knowledgeable and made me feel very welcome.  The smaller class sizes meant that I had much more one to one time with my tutor which is something I would not have had if I had studied at a large University.

"I particularly enjoyed the projects that I undertook as part of the degree.  They were very varied and interesting.  I am very proud to achieve a 1st Class Honours as I definitely put the time in to my studies and having a mature outlook meant that I really could focus on doing my very best.

"Completing the degree has really paid off for me – I now earn more money than ever before and have gone onto work in my dream job as a Games Developer for gaming design specialists, B3T based in Runcorn.  I would highly recommend returning to education and studying at the University Centre at Blackburn College if you are looking to transform your life!"
