Studied Network Engineering Security and System Administration BSc (Hons) at B&FC • Graduated in 2018
I had always been good with computers having built a few of my own. Having worked in a low-paid job for many years I was determined to improve my prospects and learn valuable skills to pursue a better career.
Although not apparent at first, the NESSA course really was a perfect fit for me; the tutors were really helpful and passionate about the content they were teaching, which transferred on to me. I now share the same passion for learning new technical skills that I can demonstrate in the workplace.
I came to the college as an adult learner while still in full-time employment and progressed through the Foundation Degree and on to achieve a First-Class Honours degree. Since graduating, I have held a number of exciting roles in IT which have fulfilled my ambition to break in to the industry.

How B&FC Helped Me
I really enjoyed college life and made some really good relationships along the way. I mostly enjoyed learning through discussions with fellow students and tutors.
Classes being held in a classroom environment rather than a large lecture theatre provides the opportunity to form relationships with the tutors and students.
Having the Cisco academy and the ability to gain some of the most sought after technical skills in IT, provides a massive advantage and a head start prior to working in the industry.
I will continue to study and grow my technical skillset while working in the industry. I have been lucky enough to work in some exciting roles already and achieved some really good things.
