Lauren, 24, of Billingham, attended an open day at the University of Teesside’s School of Health & Social Care to find out more about diploma and degree courses in child nursing, adult nursing and midwifery.

She decided to return to education following the arrival of 11-month-old son Cyrus.

During the open day she completed a questionnaire and was automatically entered into a prize draw to win the iPod.

Lauren, who has applied to study nursing and midwifery at degree level at the University, said: ‘I really enjoyed the open day and I was able to find out a lot about the courses.

‘Being able to speak to students already studying at the University was great as it was really good to get their perspective.’
