UCS has allowed me to achieve more than I could ever have thought possible and I truly believe this is down to the dedication and passion of the UCS staff; they are what makes this institution special.

Jonathan Breakell was thrilled with the establishment of University Centre Shrewsbury as it meant he could study in his hometown. The Banking and Finance student was even more thrilled, three years down the line, to discover he had achieved the highest possible grade at every stage of his degree.

“The initial appeal of UCS was that it allowed me to continue my educational journey without having to leave home. Being someone who lacked confidence before going to university, the prospect of moving away and attending a large institution did make me worry. However, from the first Visit Day I was made to feel welcome and wanted by the UCS staff and straight away bought into their vision for the university. Considering UCS wasn’t even a building at this time, this was pretty impressive.

“Three years later, to say I am over the moon to be graduating with a First Class Honours Degree, and to have achieved a First in every module I took during the course, is an understatement.”

The Staff

“There are so many people to thank, however I would like to give a special mention to Dr David Acquaye for his guidance over these years and pushing me to achieve the best result I could, I couldn't have done it without his support.

“Getting a degree has opened up a whole host of options for me moving forward. UCS has allowed me to achieve more than I could ever have thought possible and I truly believe this is down to the dedication and passion of the UCS staff; they are what makes this institution special.”
