Sheree Hatton has battled adversity to study an online psychology course with the University of Derby.

Sheree Hatton has battled adversity to study an online psychology course with the University of Derby.

A determined Halifax woman has battled adversity to fulfil her ambition of entering a rewarding career.

Sheree Hatton, 24, left school after completing her GCSEs to become a carer for her mother at home, but with a desire to become a forensic psychologist, taught herself A-levels in psychology and law whilst working full-time.

Sheree is now studying a BSc degree in Psychology online from home with University of Derby Online Learning, as well as expecting a baby.

Sheree said: “Once I completed my GCSEs I became a young carer for my mum. I also had to work full-time and once I’d got into a job and was settled I decided to teach myself my A-Levels out of a book.

“I think I probably had more motivation to complete these courses as I was doing them off my own back. So after getting my results I thought, I’ve done my A-Levels, why don’t I try a degree.

“I had always had an interest in psychology so I had a look around to see what was available online as I couldn’t afford to give up working and physically go to university.”

Sheree has now reached the second year of her degree and is considering studying a Masters degree when she completes her course.
