Student Success Story – Sophie Magilton

Sophie decided to work after leaving school without the necessary qualifications to go to university. She has now decided to widen her career options by pursuing her interest in English language and linguistics.

“The Access course has been a brilliant experience and a great opportunity to get back in to education.”

As it turns out the Access course has been a great success in the Magilton family. Previously Sophie’s sister Lauren studied on the Access course in 2011 and got a place at Cambridge University to study English Literature and has subsequently gained a degree from Cambridge and MA from Oxford. Sophie’s mum saw how successful Lauren had been from studying the Access course and decided to enrol on the Access (Healthcare) course in 2016 and is studying Speech and Language at Sheffield University.
