Why did you choose the Degree Link Route?

I didn't feel confident enough to go straight into University and felt this would be the best transition for me.

What has been the best thing about the experience?

As cliché as it sounds, the friends that I've made for life — it was amazing to share the experience alongside them.

What's the best thing about studying at NESCol?

The lecturers — I could not recommend them enough. They saw me at my best and my worst — they were very motivational.

What's the best thing about studying at RGU?

RGU has fantastic facilities. The location was very ideal for myself as I lived so close. Everyone knows everyone — so you weren't short of making friends!

Would you recommend Degree Link to other students? Why?

Absolutely. For me it was a fantastic experience! Both institutions were great and all the staff are excellent.
