Prior to starting my degree, I enrolled to do the Access to Science and Nursing course.This helped me gain confidence to return as an adult in education. It's been twelve years since I've been in education.Learning how to learn is the key, and once I grasped what is required, the course became easier for me. 

Re-entering education as an adult can be difficult due to life responsibilities. However, the support network within UcWA is brilliant; the tutors are very supportive and understanding. It is also close to home and they have a fantastic nursery.

I enjoyed all aspects of studying the access course as well as my degree. It rekindled my love for science, which was reinforced by the teachers with the passion they had for the course, as well as teaching.

The facilities provided are excellent and the college is a clean environment. The laboratory is my favourite room. The technicians are very friendly and also help students if they can. The tutors are fantastic, they clearly enjoy the subjects they are teaching, they provide support, encouragement, feedback and most importantly they are approachable. The tutors are very understanding of individuals' circumstances and are always willing to help.

I hope to do a master'degree and my goal is to obtain a doctorate. UcWA has provided me with this excellent opportunity.The facility is like a home from home and everyone is welcoming. This is one of the best decisions I have made to come back into education as an adult and with the help of UcWA, I’m able to work my way to my dream career.
