"At the same time, I started looking for work, and saw there were lots of jobs for web developers out there. In January I was offered a role as a junior web developer at Synetiq. This started as a part-time role while I finished my degree, with the offer of full-time once completed.

"This course has been one of the toughest things I have ever done, but the rewards have been great. It's never too late to come back to college and learn again."Read more case studies Explore our Digital courses
