“What I liked best about Sunderland College was how supportive the staff were, never doubting the ability of their students. The staff were also very enthusiastic about their subjects.

The best thing about the course was the support and enthusiasm of the staff. The college also had great facilities. I particularly enjoyed the food in the café!”
