I worked in higher education previously and wanted to work in an industry that was ever changing and evolving that offered work in a wide range of exciting fields.

What was the support like on the course?

Amazing support throughout the course especially considering that half of the course had to be delivered remotely due to the pandemic.

The team were very receptive to our interests and really helped prepare me for the interview for which I eventually got a job for.
