SUCCESS STORY

MATT RICHARDS, COMPUTER SCIENCE STUDENT
Matt completed the Fast Forward course in 2021 and is now in the third year of a Computer Science degree at UA92.

“I was self-employed for 10 years and reached a point where I wanted to do something different. I phoned a number of universities but when I spoke to the Admissions team at UA92, I felt like they were genuinely trying to help me get where I wanted to be.

“Without the Fast Forward course, I wouldn’t have known where to start. I didn’t have traditional A-levels so it helped me understand the best way for me to get onto a degree course. Everything was explained and it finally made sense. The staff are amazing – they are so invested in you achieving your goals. When I got an unconditional offer on a Digital course, everyone was celebrating.”
