    BA (HONS) BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION TOP UP

    PARTNER INSTITUTION: WIGAN & LEIGH COLLEGE

Janet decided to return to study at Wigan and Leigh College for the HND in Business and Finance to assist her administration career after being encouraged by a friend already on the course.

Following her successful completion of the HND, she chose to continue her studies on the BA (Hons) top up in Business Administration. Janet said going on to further study, “seemed a natural progression, with tutor and student familiarities, that gave me more confidence”.

She added: “Being part of the partnership network, I have also benefitted from using UCLan facilities, such as Futures, the careers advice service, and the extensive library facilities at UCLan.”

Janet feels her confidence has improved dramatically due to increasing her knowledge and experience. It has also opened up other career paths in business that she previously hadn’t considered.

Despite Janet being diagnosed with Dyslexia during the final part of her course, she overcame her barriers and achieved a First Class Honours Degree. Janet is now looking to progress to an art related Master’s degree at UCLan.
