What our students say

Jamela, A Levels: Applied Science, Sociology, Psychology

“The facilities at the College are great. I especially like LibraryPlus; it’s always quiet so you can concentrate on your work and you have access to the best resources.”

Jamela says that the College has taught her how to work independently, but adds that support is always there when needed. She says that her tutor has been really effective in helping her decide on her plans for the future, which she is very grateful for.

What next? After completing her A Levels, Jamela plans to go to the University of the West of England, to study Psychology.
