Foundation degree opens up career options for Nicole


AFTER a false start at university, Nicole Wills found that a foundation degree at South Eastern Regional College (SERC) gave her more options to take the right career path.

Nicole, 20, from Lisburn, pictured below, said: “I completed my GCSEs and A Levels in Laurelhill Community College, Lisburn, then progressed to Ulster University at Jordanstown to study Health Physiology but realised by the April of first year this was not the right course for me.

“I came along to an open day at SERC and after speaking to tutors, I decided to apply for the Ulster University Foundation Degree in Leadership and Management and started in September 2019.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the different areas within business which can lead to further study and job opportunities in so many different sectors.

“With the help of my tutors and the careers team at SERC, I have been able to choose a career path, something with which I have always struggled.

“I would highly recommend the Foundation Degree in Leadership and Management at SERC.

“The opportunity to have 15 weeks of placement gives you a real feel for the work in a particular business area.”
