Course Studied: BA (Hons) Human Behavioural Studies
Chelsea decided to study at the University Centre after realising that she didn’t want to move out of Cornwall, but still wanted to peruse a career in support work. After completing the Children and Youngperson’s Workforce Foundation degree at the Truro Campus, Chelsea progressed on to the BA (Hons) Human Behavioural Studies degree and graduated in October 2022. At the recent Ceremony, Chelsea was awarded the Plymouth Academic Partnership Prize for her dedication and perseverance during her studies. Chelsea is currently working as a full-time drug and alcohol support worker and is currently applying for a probation officer training Programme.
Chelsea said: “The addiction module was great as I currently work in that area as a drug and alcohol support worker, it was great to be able to apply my knowledge from work to my studies.”
“I like the campus and the fact that were split through the buildings, it’s got a great campus feel”
“The lecturers are really supportive, nothing is too much for them”
“It was great to have an option that was close, it’s great to be able to study but also have my family close by.”
“My advice to prospective students would be to come with an open mind, you’ll be surprised what you find.”
