Kerry Payne, head of access and higher education at East Coast College, said: 'Our Access Awards provide a route back into study for many adults who may not quite meet the entry requirements of a degree course.
'They also provide returning students an opportunity to brush up on their study skills – many of whom are out of practice.
'I am always delighted to see our student's progress each year to their chosen degree pathway and on to their chosen profession.
'We are after all about turning passions into professions.'
A college spokesman added: 'The college has celebrated 100pc success rates for its 2017 access cohort and is delighted that all 82 students are going on a degree course.'
