Katie McIntyre Full-time undergraduate CATS student

I was in full-time work and then I decided I wanted to go to university. I was looking at different options but I didn't have any ‘A’ Levels so I did a Modular Extended Degree at West Herts College which is like a foundation year. Work offered to keep me on - so I've been working while studying at the University. It's easy for me to go from home to work and then come here for my lectures.

Case Study

Originally I wanted to do events planning but that wasn't being offered until the following year. I would have had to wait a year and I didn't want to do that. I just wanted to get straight on with it. Another thing that attracted me to the CATS programme is that they could tailor it to me. My degree is so broad - I can use it in events planning, law, or business and management so it's more beneficial. If I enjoy one particular module I can then study something similar at a higher level or I can take something completely different. This really builds up the flexibility and keeps it interesting.

‘ ’’‘

I want to be the best at anything I do. I don't like the idea of being pigeon holed. I like the idea of doing something I find interesting and earning money from it. The great thing about the CATS programme is that you can do anything - you're not limited.
