Umarah Iqbal BA (Hons) Education Studies
“I am loving being a teacher, the job is everything I hoped it would be. Before I did my degree I studied A Levels at Blackburn College. Even though I’m from Accrington, I chose the College because the opportunities at Blackburn were so much better than elsewhere – we got to do a lot of enrichment activities and I joined the debating clubs. The degree has prepared me really well for work – the opportunities to get involved in different projects and the practical experience I gained whilst at Blackburn was great.” Read more >>

“I very much enjoyed my studies and 3 years at the University Centre at Blackburn College. The staff and tutors were of great help, the one to one sessions with them and allowed students to approach them at any time which is the kind of support you don’t receive at most universities. This course has absolutely improved my future career prospects especially with it being awarded by Lancaster University which is such an accolade." Read more >>
