I feel more prepared to study at degree level after studying my Access Diploma and ready to achieve my career goals. I have had plenty of support from my tutors and the facilities at Middlesbrough College have been really good.
Richard Baldwin

The Access to Computing course has set me up really well and made me confident. The support at Middlesbrough College has been fantastic, especially my tutor and course co-coordinator. The course has opened a lot of different pathways and options for me.

Cameron Flaki

My tutor is the best, very supportive, very encouraging and very caring. We get regular 1-1 conversations and advice.

The Access course is much more focused than a year 0 degree at university. I would recommend an Access course to anyone wanting to come back to education.  You learn how to do referencing, research, how to work to deadlines and how to structure assignments. I feel prepared to go to university.

Josh Auckland

I feel 100% prepared for progressing to University to study my degree in Computer Science. The support from the tutors and staff has been amazing, I fell behind due to personal circumstances but with their guidance and action plans I am back on track. I would genuinely recommend the Access course to anyone wanting to go back to education.
