My Access to HE course gave me the opportunity to focus on my different options. I now have the opportunity to improve the urban environment through my knowledge of horticultural design and sustainable development. I owe a big debt of gratitude to University Centre Reaseheath. My time there helped me to decide where I wanted to go.
