With a passion for helping people, Paige hopes to become an occupational therapist so she can help make everyday lives easier. She chose Northumberland College to achieve the qualifications needed to study at university.

Level 3 Health & Social Care

To get the qualifications I needed to go to university.

I enjoyed the course because it offered a good mixture of both coursework and practical lessons.

They were always very supportive and helpful.

Studying at Northumberland College helps you build confidence and the support it offers is good.

I’m studying BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy at Northumbria University.

Studying at Northumberland College improved my confidence and that helped me with my university interviews.
