A visit to an Open Day was all it took to convince Umar Abid to study at UCEN Manchester. One year later, he’s graduating with a first class honours degree in Software Development, an achievement he is rightly proud of.
We caught up with Umar to talk about his highlights and next steps.
The reason I chose UCEN Manchester is that one of my friends recommended it to me. I came with him to an Open Day and I really liked the atmosphere.
I feel so proud. I’ve put a lot of hard work to try and get a first class degree.
I really enjoyed my time here because the tutors are very helpful and my classmates were friendly as well.
The tutors are very helpful and friendly. They are always willing to help, during the academic year and outside of that too. For example, if you need any support over the summer.
Next I’m looking for a Software Development role and I’ve already got a few interviews lined up.
My career aspirations are to become a Software Developer and then long term, work as a Senior Software Developer.
I would definitely recommend UCEN Manchester because all the tutors and staff a really friendly and they are always willing to help in any way possible.
