John Messeter
Access to University (Humanities)
I left school at 16 with no qualifications and after many years working in retail and customer service, I noticed that people with degrees were being promoted before me. I found out about SWAP after calling University of Dundee and, after a year at Dundee and Angus College completing the SWAP Access Programme, I haven’t looked back.

I am now in third year at Dundee University and love it. My advice for anyone thinking of going back to education is to do it. SWAP offers a fantastic opportunity to further your education and improve your career prospects

Fast forward to 2021. I'm delighted to say that I finished my degree, Geography with German  in 2020 with a 2:1. In January 2021 I applied for PDGE primary teaching which will hopefully start in September 2021. Due to Covid there is very little else happening workwise although, currently, I am working with a team of tree surgeons on a mix of domestic and commercial work.

Life is still very busy for me and my family though as my wife and I continue to foster children for Angus council.
