“I’ve really enjoyed my time at the College. The teachers are amazing and always there to help if you need it. During the course, we got to go on great trips which really helps when completing assignments. We visited Keele University to work in their labs, but the highlight for me was visiting the Crime Scene House at Staffordshire University. I achieved D*D*D which has meant I gained a place at Liverpool University to study Adult Nursing.”
