My Story

My journey at B&FC began in 2014 as a mature student.

I was accepted onto the Access to Higher Education course with a view to increasing my knowledge of ‘Science’, specifically Biology and the human body. I was not disappointed.

The course modules are challenging and the fantastic tutors encouraged me to think outside the box to reach my potential.

I was impressed with their knowledge of industry and their ability to pass on the course content in a way that was easy to follow and understand. A lot of the modules were new to me and through them, I saw the world of science through new eyes. 

Upon successful completion of the Access course I applied to B&FC to attend the Foundation degree course in Human Bioscience to further my studies.

The FdSc exceeded my expectations. No two semesters were the same, the module topics were varied, interesting and relevant to ensure career progression.

I am due to enrol on the BSc Human Bioscience course to further my education and I have already started researching the topics as I fully expect an intense year ahead.

I will be taking full advantage of the support teams available to me and encourage all students at B&FC to do the same.

This is my education and I want to achieve the best degree possible to secure a great job which will enable me to take care of my family.

Having gained a Commendation for my FdSc I will be knocking on HELMS door at every opportunity to benefit from their years of experience and knowledge in my bid for a first-class honours degree.

How B&FC Helped Me

The work experience I participated in suited my career aspirations and my personality. I increased my knowledge base, made some valuable connections and gained confidence in my own abilities.

I am now a STEM ambassador which I would not have known about had I not attended various extra-curricular events hosted by B&FC.

This has provided me with the opportunity to encourage people of all ages to follow their own dreams and enjoy the benefits of having an Ofsted Outstanding College right on their doorstep. 

Why B&FC?

With B&FC, nothing is unachievable. My advice to prospective students is to work hard, do not sit back, ask questions as nothing is too trivial.

The locale of the university centre in Blackpool town centre is ideal as there are transport links and having three children at local schools, I needed to be close by.

You will certainly get out of the course what you put in - and enjoy the experience.
