The first Foundation students graduated from their degree programmes in July 2017. You can read more about their stories here:
Eulinda Antonette Clarke-Akalanne
"I might be more than 70 years old, but I’m proof that it’s never too late to continue your education. My son thinks that I've got more zest for life since I became a student."
"If you drew a Venn diagram of us all, there wouldn't be any overlaps, this is what makes our discussions so fascinating."
"I love writing essays, especially philosophical ones. It's just like having a conversation with someone!"
"I thought I'd apply, even though I thought I was never going to be good enough. I've been out of education for 34 years."
"There is lots of support available if you've been out of education for a while. I'm so pleased to be back."
"The great thing about the Foundation is how much you learn in such a short amount of time, and how many ideas you're exposed to."
