"The University Centre is very well-organised and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience."

Richard said: “I chose to study my degree at Blackburn University Centre because it is a modern educational establishment and geographically close to where I live. This was ideal as it meant I could condense my course into two days a week and study around my work commitments.

“I have enjoyed learning from great tutors who have lots of industry experience. I also enjoyed the smaller class sizes and the productive and supportive student cohort groups.

“Blackburn University Centre has prepared me for the future by increasing my knowledge in all aspects of Construction including Pathology, Surveying, Contracts, Project Management and Contracts Administration – which are all core skills.

“The University Centre is very well-organised and I can’t speak highly enough of my experience.”

He added: “The tutors were very encouraging and helped me achieve my goals through their supportive nature. They used blended learning where they combined face-to-face and online teaching and pushed us to make the most of the web-based Moodle resources.

“Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the transition from face-to-face to online teaching was seamless and my tutors Bill Rowland and Rebecca Lawlor were always on hand to provide timely feedback.

“Since leaving Blackburn University Centre, I have worked as a Construction Project Manager and now work as a Building Surveyor for Cowan & Co Building Consultancy in Euxton. I am also working towards the RICS Chartership."
