Laura Darby's story

“What I have liked about studying for my degree at the Hugh Baird University Centre is the small class sizes and the fact that we have such easy access to our tutors. They are always there to help and support."

After a break from study to have a family, Laura returned to education in 2015 to work towards her ambition of becoming a primary school teacher. She completed the Foundation Degree in Children, Young People and their Services at the Hugh Baird University Centre before progressing to the BA (Hons) Top up in Education and Professional Studies, both of which are validated by the University of Central Lancashire.
