And what made you pick this particular study programme/course?

I always enjoyed going to college once a week, it never really felt a chore. I enjoyed learning new things that I had a genuine interest in.

The highlights of the course for me were passing exams throughout the time at college – some of which took hard work and lots of determination to complete. It was always nice to get one more step toward qualifying.

What do you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
A good thing I always found about Petroc was the smaller classes which made it easier to study and a quicker process altogether.

My plan is to carry on working with the firm I work with.

My long term plan is to hopefully own an electrical company myself.
