“I first wanted to study with the college in my gap year because the course seemed extremely beneficial in terms of giving me the skills I needed to progress to university. However, after studying here on the Level 3 90 Credit Diploma course I’ve decided to progress onto the HNC course as it meets all my needs for a HE course.”

Mollie Dignan (L3 90 Credit Diploma student who is progressing onto HNC Photography in September 2018.)
