"I feel that not all students may be ready to start University from the 1st year and having Degree Link in place helps a lot of students."

Year 1: HNC Built Environment
Years 2-4: BSc (Hons) Construction Management

Why did you choose the Degree Link Route?

RGU allowed me to join straight into 2nd year of their Construction Management course thanks to Degree Link, which meant I could gain my qualification quicker.

What's the best thing about studying at NESCol?

I feel that the practical side of College was very beneficial to me. The lecturers that had experience in the industry of working as joiners and bricklayers, for example, were great at passing on invaluable experience in the industry and were very proficient in their teaching.

What are you most looking forward to about coming to study here at RGU?

I am really looking forward to being a part of the projects available at RGU within my course. I have seen comments from students about being involved with real projects such as with Robertson Construction where students were able to visit the sites where works were taking place and this interests me a lot.

Would you recommend Degree Link to other students? Why?

Yes I would. I feel that not all students may be ready to start University from the 1st year and having Degree Link in place helps a lot of students such as myself to build confidence and understanding in the course.
