What were you doing before coming to Wrexham University?

I had worked in the care industry for many years.

What attracted you to Wrexham University?

I received a flyer through the door and had always been interested in counselling, so I attended the open day. Upon chatting with the team on the counselling stand they redirected me to Mental health and wellbeing, as he felt I would was more suited to that .

What was the atmosphere like around campus?


What did you enjoy most about your course?

Attending lectures and learning about the many parts of mental health and wellbeing.

What was the support like?

AMAZING! I suffered some personal circumstances and the support that I received was brilliant. I never would have completed my degree without that support.

Would you recommend undertaking a course with Wrexham University, and why?

100%! It’s a great place with great support 

How did your time at Wrexham University prepare you for the world of work?

Although I’m 46 and have had many jobs, I learnt a lot from the employment modules and it put me in a  good position for entering the industry.

What have you done since graduating and what does your current job involve?

Whilst studying my degree I discovered a passion for ACEs and now work in a school on one-to-one support with a pupil, I would like to eventually work as a wellbeing officer for pupils in schools.

How did studying at Wrexham University help you?

Unfortunately, when I was accepted to Wrexham Uni, I had been subjected to a negative work situation, that had taken all my confidence and self belief, I was not in the best place from a mental health point of view and had suffered a breakdown, my degree restored some confidence and has improved my mental health dramatically.

At the age of 43 embarking on an academic journey was scary but with support and guidance I now have a degree! I’ve made some lifelong friends and learnt valuable lessons about myself.
