“Since leaving school in 2012 I have studied at the university a number of times, including completing a business-related degree. During my latest study experience I have had the chance to be heavily involved with STEM and STEAM projects where I have been able to meet many inspirational people. Being taught by lecturers with such impressive, real-life knowledge of the field really helped to enrich the entire experience.”
