What do our students think?

Our health, care and education students give their thoughts on their college experience

“When I started at The College I was really lacking in confidence. With support from my tutors, it has developed. There are a range of teaching activities. It is challenging, but having lots of work experience helped me to learn and achieve.”
Katie Marques - Childhood and Social Care student

“When I came to college I wanted the opportunity to reach my full potential. With the help available and support of my tutors it has been possible for me to get my dream (Paramedic) job. I would recommend The College to any learner.”
Ema Grevatt - Childhood and Social Care student

“The setting is interesting for the learner and it is always a pleasure to have students. The clients like the students, and it is a good experience for the learner.”

I started on the Level 2 Diploma in Science a few years ago with The College and achieved a distinction star. I then progressed onto the Level 3 Medical Science Diploma. It was a really interactive course with lots of practical experiments where you could put what you’ve learned into practice. I really loved doing the biomedical and genetics units. I’m now moving on to the Higher National Diploma (HND) in Applied Biology with The College. I’ve learned so much from the science department that I decided to stay here for a Higher Education course rather than go to university.

I’ve always wanted to go into a caring role in the medical profession so I started college on the Level 2 Science course and progressed on to the Level 3 Medical Science Diploma after that. After some thought and consideration I decided that Midwifery was the career for me. Unfortunately my first year didn't quite go to plan and I didn't get the results I was hoping for. However in the second year I worked really hard to make sure I got the good grades I would need to apply for a Midwifery course at university. I’ve met some amazing people during my time at The College; it’s like having a support group. I’ve now got an interview at Bedfordshire University this summer, so I’ve got my fingers crossed.
