Return to Learn

I’m originally from England but now live in Perth. Before coming to college, I was running my own cleaning business. I decided to pick the Return to Learn course as I needed a new career due to not being able to keep my business going due to scoliosis.

A standout moment of the course for me was going from level 5 to level 6 maths, and I am proud that I have been able to pass maths. I also managed to achieve English, and I am very proud of that because I am dyslexic.

I have enjoyed studying at UHI Perth as I have become more confident within myself. I also liked how the campus was open plan.

After I finish my course, I am hoping to get an HNC and degree in Psychology. If you are thinking about studying at UHI Perth, my advice would be to definitely join ‘Return to Learn’ as it opens so many doors to a new career in the future.
