'Studying a BTEC helped prepare me for uni'
BTEC qualifications provide you with valuable skills for studying at university and help in preparing students for applied learning and industry experience. Automotive engineering student Shamu Raza gained a vocational BTEC qualification before taking up his undergraduate course.
"My BTEC mainly helped me with coursework because studying a BTEC means doing a lot of research work independently. This has meant at uni I have always been strong in my assignments."
"My main worry about studying a degree was the examinations because during my BTEC I didn't take any exams. I quickly overcame that with the support and help of my lecturers."
