Habibur Rahman Mohammed
"I am a university student at UCL ( University College London ).
Last academic year I attended the Access to Higher Education in IT & Product Design.
I decided to do this at Newham College because the course has lots of excellent modules from Information Technology units extending to Engineering units, such as: Electronics, Mechanics etc. and subjects that are highly requested by top universities.
It is not an easy course, so do not underestimate it at first sight. It is absolutely one of the best and empowering courses I have ever done, because it has given me the opportunity to gain a lot of essential knowledge for the course I am doing now at UCL.
Finally, the majority of the course is taught by Mauricio Morales-Ortiz, who is a very friendly and helpful teacher who supported every student throughout the year.
My warmest regards to new students undertaking this magnificent course."
"I'm studying Access to Business and information Systems. The course includes an array of units will enable me to enter into the world of business and technology.
I am so pleased to have found the course as it contains the right level of maths, IT and business that universities are interested in as well as supportive lecturers and support staff.
Due to this I have received an offer to study Business Management at Kings College London which I am looking forward to starting in September."

“I studied an Access to Higher Education Diploma in IT and Product Design at Newham College of Further Education,
At first I wasn't sure about what I wanted to study as I was interested in IT, Computer Science and Business; through the help and mentoring of my teachers and the support available at the college my interest grew and I loved the course. Due to the care and dedication offered my grades kept improving until and I completed the course with flying colours. The course I studied and grades I obtained helped me gain entry into the University of Manchester studying computer science.”
"I did the the CYQ Level 3 Personal Training course at Newham College, before starting my own personal training business. I then continued studying and did the Access to Higher Education Sports Science course, as well as GCSE English and Maths, which I studied in the evening. It was great to achieve the GCSE Englsih as an additional language, since I'm originally from Romania.
I went on to study Sports Therapy at UEL, so far, university life has been very interesting and enjoyable. It does involve a lot of hard work and a great amount of time doing research. So far, I have achieved very good grades and I've received very good feedback from my tutors.
A couple of weeks ago I had my first Anatomy exam and achieved a first class greade of 83%. I want to thank the teachers at Newham College for everything they taught me and for all their support and encouragement. They really made me believe in myself and taught me what I needed to know in order to start my journey at university."
