Meet our Pathways Students5 December 2016
With the Pathway to a Degree Open Day in January, we thought we’d share with you what it’s really like to embark on a Pathways programme and spoke to one of our Inside Narratives students (Pathway to a Degree in English Language, Literature & Philosophy), Tammy Davies about her journey with Continuing and Professional Education.
“I was working through a series of dead-end call centre jobs and temporary administrative positions that left me worried about job security on a daily basis. In 2013, Continuing and Professional Education launched Inside Narratives, the Pathway to a Degree in English Language, Literature & Philosophy. This is something I’d always dreamed of doing back home in Canada but it hadn’t been an option for me when I graduated from High School.
In my case, the Pathway, consisting of six modules studied over six months, prepared me for the level of academic knowledge required when I started my degree at Cardiff University. I was terrified about embarking on a three year journey into Higher Education as I had not been at school for over 20 years! The 60 credits I had earned on the Pathway carried over into my first year of degree studies so I only had to choose a further 60 credits, helping to ease me back into education. The personal tutors, module leaders and my fellow students at Cardiff University were so supportive and encouraging that I really had nothing to worry about, in the end. I’ve made friends as an Undergraduate that I know will be friends for life. I’m currently halfway through my final year and excited about the opportunities and new career options open to me that were never available before I studied with Continuing and Professional Education.”
