Pawel Huszcza. Gained an Access to HE Diploma in Computing at The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London and then a Masters degree in Computer Science at King’s College London. Now employed as a software engineer.
Polish-born Pawel started on his career path by gaining an Access to HE Diploma in Computing in 2009. He then went on to achieve a first-class degree in Computing at King’s College London, progressing to a Masters Degree in Computer Science. Pawel is now employed as a software engineer with a bright future ahead of him.
Thinking back to his experiences on the Access Diploma he says: “The Access to HE Diploma became quite literally my ticket to the future. It opened a way to a new career and allowed me to enter into the software engineering industry. It seems to me that we don’t always appreciate great opportunities given to us by the British educational system, often to its most disadvantaged learners. If it were not for Access to Higher Education I would never find myself in this place. The programme is a great opportunity for people to change their career paths - something that is so greatly missed in the Polish educational system and in many other countries. It is a reason to be proud of British education.”
