With Thirteen Academy you could get involved… like Sarah

A Thirteen Academy scholarship covering course fees at Teesside University is a fantastic opportunity for those who live in a Thirteen home and have aspirations to study but who might not have considered applying to university– and Sarah is thrilled to be involved!


27 May 2021

Sarah, 33, from Stainton, second year BA (Hons) Human Resource Management student, said: “Teesside University and Thirteen have had such a positive impact on my life.

“The Academy has already offered so many opportunities to better my future career prospects. I am working with Thirteen as part of the customer involvement team and as a digital ambassador for the University both of which are fantastic in terms of experience and progression.”

She added: “I enjoy studying immensely, I love that my degree pathway means that I learn different elements of Business Management alongside the Human Resource management subjects.

“The new Student Life building offers fantastic support, and the Library is a great learning environment. I can’t wait to be back on site and use these facilities again as soon as we safely can. Working and studying from home during the pandemic has been challenging, but challenging times often produce growth and progression.”

Sarah, who has been inspired by the way everyone has had to adapt to new ways of working during the pandemic, has chosen to write about this subject for her degree dissertation.

She added: “My advice to anyone thinking of applying to study to the Thirteen Academy, is that I would urge them apply and become a part of this auspicious opportunity.”
