Case study: Progression Partner Award

“I could not recommend the pathway option at the University of Gloucestershire more! This pathway is designed for students that are looking to further their education in an environment that is realistic to the changing needs of higher education students. Although I was a remote and international student, felt truly connected to the program and the instructors. My tutors were supportive through every step and in just eight months, this program gave me the ability to turn my diploma into a Master’s degree.”
