"I returned to education after a nine year break where I worked a number of jobs, got married, and had three children. From foundation year to final year the department and staff are so supportive and helpful, and there have been many opportunities to get involved in other activities like becoming a STEM Ambassador and helping with open days. This really gave me the chance to think about my future, and made me reconsider teaching as a real option.
I transferred to the MEng course at the first chance I had, and it has offered many additional learning opportunities and experiences. The module options cover such a variety of interesting areas and staff are really enthusiastic about their subjects. The whole experience has reminded me just how much I love to learn, and as a result I have a place to continue to study on a PGCE with a view to teaching Secondary Physics in the future."
