Why did you choose to study in this college?

interested in working with youth, wide choice of subjects, a lot of diffferent career choices.

On reflection, what made it the right or wrong choice for you?

I have changed and grown as a person since Ive started this course. I have learned a lot about myself and become more self aware. This course is perfect for me.

How many hours of organised classes do you have per week?


Are your lectures/labs mainly based on or off the main campus?


Is your course weighted more on continuous assessment or end of year exams?

Continuous assessment

Is there an option to study abroad on your course?


What are your favourite aspects of your course?

its very practical, you get to go on work placement in 2nd year and 3rd year. Placement is a great opportunity to make contacts for the future and you get to learn so much. You finally get to put theory into practice which is very rewarding. you can also study in denmark or norway in 3rd year and have the opportunity to go abroad for placement in 3rd year. The subjects are extremely interesting and the staff are so helpful.
