“One of the best decisions I’ve made for myself was studying this college’s Extended Diploma in Fine Art and Design. The teachers and the career service staff were able to give me a lot of specific information about which industries I could work in with my new skills. At least in my subject area, I would recommend having an open mind about where you’re going to work, because it might be somewhere you don’t expect.”

“Thanks to the college’s STEM offerings, I’ve been able to get a work experience placement related to renewable energy. The teachers here are people who always make their best effort to help you, even if it’s not easy for them to do so because there are a lot of students studying here.”
