Abigail thought the teaching staff at Sunderland College were great and she was inspired by their teaching style. Abigail progressed to Northumbria University to study BSc (Hons) Geography.
“The teaching staff were great and gave excellent support and advice. I liked the exciting ways in which we learnt such as going on fieldtrips.
Studying at Sunderland College has prepared me for university through great advice and guidance I received from staff about higher education options and the excellent support with UCAS applications and personal statements.”
After gaining a first class honours degree at Northumbria University she progressed to full-time employment with Gentoo and is hoping to start a master’s degree in environmental science soon.
