“After working in unfulfilling, low-paid jobs I decided to study for an Access to HE Diploma at South Devon College. The College has been brilliant - allowing me to tailor the course to study the subjects I’m really passionate about and supporting and advising me in the transition back into education. The staff have provided excellent academic feedback which has enabled me to flourish and achieve a place to study Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Cambridge. I'm grateful to the staff at the College for helping me begin my journey to becoming a Clinical Psychologist.”Paul Matthews
