"I have enjoyed every moment of the course and pushed myself to levels I never thought I'd be able to. I joined after Sixth Form where I didn’t have the best experience, so I wondered how being at college would differ. However after only a couple of months I was achieving Distinctions and now have the grades to go to university! I’d highly recommend this course to anyone considering a career in the Uniformed Public Services.”
Jess Cox: Uniformed Public Services Student

“As well as the trips abroad, I’ve really enjoyed the outdoor activities we’ve been involved in. I’ve just completed a water sport unit which included getting involved in activities such as kayaking, canoeing, sailing and so much more. It was very exciting! A highlight was probably when we went on a trip with the Marines. They gave us an insight into what they do and their training.”
Jordan Kearn: Uniformed Public Services Student

I thoroughly enjoyed my time whilst studying Uniformed Public Services at college. My two years were filled with nonstop fun from the never ending activities such as sailing, rock climbing, paintballing and hiking to name a few. The lecturers are a true credit to the course and collectively they bring a variety of experience and knowledge from their past roles as ex-service men and women.  Their commitment to the course to the lectures they teach and to the students is incredible. I recommend this course 110% for the experience, enjoyment and the action packed fun it has to offer.
