Tahir Patel - BEng Electrical and Electronics Engineering

  • Studied: BEng Electrical and Electronics Engineering

“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. I found the 'classroom style' teaching massively effective compared to lecture theatre style teaching and we were encouraged to ask direct questions to the lecturer. That would allow a more in-depth explanation and understanding of our studies. Without this style of teaching I very much doubt I would have achieved the results I did. This course has absolutely improved my future career prospects especially with it being awarded by Lancaster University which is such an accolade.

“Having completed the degree I have secured a role working for Lancashire County Council, working in the design and construction department. Without this qualification I would be unable to get into this. I would absolutely recommend studying at the University Centre at Blackburn College - the teaching methods are a much better approach then other universities”.
