        I gained access to the course through an organisation called ‘Positive People’ and thought it would be a good course for me to complete as I’d always preferred outside, hands-on work instead of working in an office environment, which I’d previously done for more than 20 years in the Transport industry.

            If not working on site with an employer, learners will benefit from the incredible modern facilities, as most teaching will take place at our Winter Gardens Campus in the heart of Weston-super-Mare.

            Situated a stone throw from the beach, this vibrant environment is home to our HEART team where you’ll have access to the incredible support services they offer our learners.

            Teaching takes place next to our main LibraryPlus facilities too. As well as accessing books, journals and other important resources, here you can hire computing equipment to aid your studies.

            UCW students also get discount to The Green House coffee shop, attached to The Winter Gardens Campus.

            For me the quality of the teaching was paramount and evidently effective in the value added to my learning journey. I entered the course with average or below FE grades and exited with a First-Class Honours degree achieving over 80%. I believe this improvement is largely down to the commitment of the lecturers to make the learning accessible in a range of ways to align with how their students learn.
