Having worked in a job she did not enjoy for two years, Hollie O’Reilly felt it was time to follow her passion for computing and sign up for a B&FC degree in Interactive Media Development.

Three years later and the 24-year-old, from Layton, is graduating from her programme at Blackpool and The Fylde College with a first class honours degree from Lancaster University.

She said: “I really enjoyed my course and picked it because it covered a lot of different specialities and gave me lots of skills that are important for my career.
