My story Dan Bowyers
Access to Higher Education (Health Professions) Level 3 Diploma

Dan Bowyers

Hello I’m Dan, I’m 31, I’m studying Access to Health Professions and this is my story.

I started at the College in September 2014 with ambition of becoming a mental health nurse. I want to help people with drug addictions and alcohol abuse. What inspired me was that I am a recovering alcoholic myself. I have been battling with alcohol for ten years and have now been sober for four years.

On my mission to scout out colleges, I found South Essex College on the website and it seemed like the one for me. It looked large and modern. I didn’t know before about Access courses and when I saw that you didn’t need any previous qualifications I knew it was the place for me and that I could be in university within a year.

I came along to the open day, felt straight at home and loved it, which I have done ever since.

I have had a great experience on the course. The teachers have been great and really helpful. Whenever there is a problem you can always talk to them or email them if it is out of hours. I have also made some really good friends, which is a bonus. It has been really challenging but worth it.

Now my course is coming to an end, I am going to Greenwich University do a three-year course in mental health nursing and then hopefully get a job in the NHS. Eventually my partner and I would like to take our child and work abroad.

I would like to say to anyone who is suffering from an addiction and is maybe a bit worried about coming back into education that it can be done. I am living proof of that. I have been through alot in my life and I never pictured myself here four years ago. I think that if you have the determination and the passion you can get anywhere in life.
