Gregor Milligan is a Computing and Digital student that has progressed from Level 3 Computing studied at Rotherham College, to a degree in Computing and Systems Development at dedicated Higher Education campus, University Centre Rotherham (UCR).
Gregor decided to stay at Rotherham College and study locally rather than moving to university. Gregor said, “By staying at Rotherham College and eventually progressing onto UCR, I had the chance to continue working with tutors that I’ve now been taught by for the last few years and offer the support that I wouldn’t have access to in bigger study groups at a traditional university.”
Gregor Milligan, BSc (Hons) in Computing and Systems Development
“It’s through my tutors’ encouragement to intellectually push myself that’s got me this far.”
Throughout his studies, Gregor has developed a wide range of skills including data analytics and a deeper understanding of algorithms, networking and data structures; these skills have helped Gregor provisionally gain a place on his Masters in Big Data Analytics at Sheffield Hallam University in September.
Gregor adds, “I’d like to eventually go onto a PhD in data analytics or become a data analyst, and it’s through my tutors’ encouragement to intellectually push myself that’s got me this far.
“Anyone that is wanting to study a Computing course at Rotherham College should attend an Open Day first to get a feel of the place, speak to the tutors as well as current students – this way you will see first-hand whether a Computing course here will match your expectations as well as your career goals.”
