“I’d worked for about 20 years in engineering before realising I wanted to do more. I’d gone as far as I could in the area I was in, so I thought to myself how can I go further?”

“It wasn’t easy to begin with, it’d been such a long time since I had last studied, but it was made so much easier by the lecturers genuinely wanting to be part of my learning experience.”

“For all those barriers I thought I had, the biggest one was myself. I thought it was past my time but it’s definitely not.”
