Adele progressed from her degree to a master's in education.
'Teesside has enabled me to explore a number of routes and expand my experience.'
I studied BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies at Teesside University. I came through clearing as I didn't know what I wanted to do when I left college. My original plan was to study at college for a further year to gain the additional experience I wanted to move onto university but, it turned out, I had the right A-level subjects to go straight to university to start the course I’d planned to study.
My experience at Teesside University has allowed me to fully understand the career path I want to take. It has allowed me to explore a number of routes and expand my experience. I recommend Teesside University and the early childhood studies degree course to any student. As a local student it has given me the freedom and experience of university whilst giving me the comfort of living at home. I was initially undecided about which part of education I wanted to work within and this course has allowed me to explore many avenues of education.
I felt very supported under the instruction of lecturers who have first-hand experience of the modules they are teaching. I am now studying an MA Education at Teesside University – a master’s will further enhance my career opportunities, for example enabling me to teach abroad.
