What students said:
I think the only real obstacle I’ve had to overcome is my own doubts. Other than that, like I don't have anything else really holding me back.
It was really difficult to try and find my way through and then with Open Universities it was almost like “Hang on a minute. Oh, this is easy”.
I think a lot of people are perfectly capable – they really do just need that help getting started and I just feel it needs to be more of a priority to educate everyone, not just those whose parents have been successful and lucky.
I wasn’t very confident and I didn’t think I was smart enough to do what I’m doing. Had I known that I would have got into it a lot earlier.
