    I had visited other universities but none could compete with Oxford Brookes’ organisation and energy.

    The course encompasses all the aspects that I want within a career; the opportunity to help others, variety in the job role, and the opportunity to go into different areas within social work to broaden my experiences.

    As I had been out of education for a number of years I found the Upgrade service particularly useful.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed being a mature student. I have gained knowledge, skills, and have had opportunities which have pushed me out of my comfort zone, allowing me to progress.

    You become a family/community within the course.

    I chose Brookes because I felt that the course was small enough to be able to provide me with support and because the university itself had a homely feel.
