After successfully graduating from the Access Course, Alan achieved a 2:1 in BA English Studies before completing PDGE in Secondary Education and becoming a teacher. 

Alan now works as a Student Recruitment Manager (Scotland & Widening Participation) at the University of Stirling, supporting people in accessing Higher Education. 

“The Access course provided me with a route to my chosen degree as I did not achieve the qualifications I required at school. I have now completed the full circle and returned to the university to support people, like me, from Scotland and Widening Participation backgrounds, hoping to access Higher Education."

Talking about the Access Course, Alan says: “Enquire, learn more and apply! This is a very supportive route to a degree study. It equips you with essential academic skills to succeed in higher education.”
