    "University Campus Oldham is a very personal university; all the staff here are very friendly and helpful. We are all like a family. You also have access to a lot of one to one time with your lecturers which you don’t get at bigger universities. The lecturers here are always available for you to come and see."

Stacey Williamson, 32, returned to her studies to build on her qualifications as she wanted a change in her career. ​

UCO was the perfect choice as it was a stone’s throw away from Stacey’s home and it also offered BA (Hons) Business Management, which is exactly what she wanted to study. ​

“University Campus Oldham is a very personal university; all the staff here are very friendly and helpful. We are all like a family. You also have access to a lot of one to one time with your lecturers which you don’t get at bigger universities. The lecturers here are always available for you to come and see.” ​

During her second year on the course Stacey and her group organised a career fair with Oldham Council and their Positive Steps team, for local people. This group activity really built her confidence. ​

Stacey’s advice to those wanting to return to studies is: “Come and try it, I gave it a go and it was a life changing experience.” ​

Returning to UCO in September, Stacey will be enrolling onto a PGCE course. If she was to describe her experience at UCO in three words, these would be family, dedication and commitment.
