"I previously studied at a local grammar school, and chose to study a Foundation Degree at the University Centre South Devon because it meant I could stay close to home, which meant that I could save money. I also really liked that the course required a placement alongside your studies, which was a really valuable way of gaining essential experience. The tutors on the course were incredibly helpful, and they were always there to provide various levels of support. I was really pleased to gain a strong overall grade, and I was particularly proud of my research project. I used to teach outdoor education, but had decided to teach indoors instead, and I'm really glad I made that choice. I'm now aiming to top-up my degree and gain a PGCE so that I can become a primary school teacher."Stephanie Hudson
