Brooklands College students celebrate university success
Mature students at Brooklands College are celebrating after confirming their places at university following their course success.
Thirty students at the college successfully completed the access to higher education diploma, a course specifically designed for mature students who left school or college without A-levels.
The course develops subject-specific knowledge alongside important skills needed to prepare the student for university such as communication skills and personal and academic study skills.
Memory Chiyangwa, 42, from Cobham and Tolulope Oligbinde, 35, from Sunbury, studied on the access to higher education social science pathway and will both be going to Bucks New University to help them become social workers.
Ms Oligbinde said: “We really loved studying Access at Brooklands, it was informative and also taught us important lessons in study skills. The staff and college as a whole were very supportive.”
Students on the healthcare pathway are going on to study a range of subjects including midwifery, radiography and sport rehabilitation.
Limited places are available on both courses starting this September. For more information, call 01932 797797.
