I chose to study an engineering focused degree because there is so much to learn. The tutors are great and have so much industry knowledge which they share with you. The staff are really helpful if you need guidance. My apprenticeship is with Spirent Communications and I won ‘Apprentice of the Year’ in 2015 at the Apprenticeship Awards, which I’m really proud of.
