BSc (Hons) Computer Studies
What brought you to study part-time at Teesside?
I started studying part-time while working as a teaching assistant in a primary school. After completing a basic computer qualification, I wasn’t ready to give up learning so I decided to enrol on an HND Computing (Information Technology).
When I graduated, I celebrated a double success by being awarded both the British Computer Society Prize and the HND Prize. I thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills, particularly the programming languages such as Visual Basic and HTML. I continued studying to gain a first-class BSc (Hons) Computer Studies and was awarded the Cecil M Yuill Foundation Student Award: Achievement in Any Field making me Student of the Year 2009
How did that feel?
I was totally amazed and delighted when I found out on how well I had done. My family were very proud of me.
What are you doing now?
Since then I've fulfilled a long-held ambition - setting up my own company ALH Computing Designs (www.alhcomputingdesigns.co.uk), providing web and database services for local businesses.
How did you balance study with the rest of your life?
Studying while working and having a family is hard work but, if you organise yourself well, anything is achievable.
