• Studied: BSc (Hons) Computing Top Up
I made the decision to study at the University Centre at Blackburn College because of its convenient location, which allowed me to continue working full-time alongside studying. I also really appreciated the fact that they welcomed mature learners.

There were so many things on the course that I enjoyed, such as programming and the final major project we had to create. My project involved the creation of a location-based, recommendation assistant for people looking to find a good restaurant to eat at and I’m really proud of the way it turned out.

The great thing about the University Centre at Blackburn College is how well they prepare you for your career. From work placements to presentations to interview skills – there’s a ton of life skills you pick up. Before I started I was a bit shy, so my time studying for a degree definitely helped.

I’ve now got secured a graduate role as a Software Developer at software development company Polar Moment and I’ve moved to London as a result. When I found out I had achieved First-Class Honours, I uploaded my CV to a recruitment website and I had the graduate role in less than a week. I couldn’t believe it!
