Access to Higher Education Student Scoops a National Student of the Year award

Access to Higher Education graduate from Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor, Kelly Osbourne, has been awarded the Student of the Year award from Agored Cymru.

Kelly, who now studies Midwifery at Bangor University, completed the Access to Higher Education (Health Care) Diploma during 2022, at the Pwllheli campus.

Kelly received the prestigious Agored Cymru award for the best presented piece of work submitted to the awarding body, in a ceremony at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor recently.

Victor Morgan, Access to Higher Education Manager at Agored Cymru said,

"Kelly showed excellence in all aspects of her work, and it was of a much higher standard than what is common. And although this award has existed for a number of years now, Kelly's work stands with the best there has ever been."

The aim of the Access to Higher Education Diplomas in Wales is to provide the skills necessary to go on to follow a higher education programme successfully. They are intended for learners who have had significant life experience since they completed their compulsory education.

The Diploma in Healthcare includes health related subjects in areas such as Anatomy and Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Psychology and Health.

Euros Wyn Hughes, Programme Area Manager of Health and Care at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor said,

“The college is extremely proud of Kelly's resounding success. It's clear from listening to what the competition judge had to say about Kelly's work, that she has not only met the standard, but exceeded all expectations."

He added,

"Thanks to the Access to Higher Education qualification, Kelly is now following one of the most competitive university courses - Midwifery at Bangor University. We are very proud to be able to offer this course, and are pleased to see our past students excelling in careers within healthcare”.
