Access to Higher Education: Muyunda’s Story

September 21, 2019 0 By Ronny Jaskolski


My name is Muyunda Lifumbela. I’m studying
Social Sciences, Batchelor’s degree. I did
not have A-Levels so the Access course came
as a brilliant opportunity for me to get into
university. When I went to university I thought
that the younger students would be much better
than me because they did A-Levels but I found
out that the Access course prepared me fully
for university work and never I struggled
at all. It was a bit of a challenge to adjust
to the fact that some of my classmates are
younger than me and I look at them as friends,
we chat etc. None of them have made me feel
like I’m a mature student, we just treat each
the same. I found the Access course
very fulfilling and prepares you for university
work.
