He said:
“I decided to study at Sunderland College as I knew it would help me progress onto the career path I wanted. The College is also situated in an easily accessible location, which suited my travel arrangements

The best things about Sunderland College for me were the community and the good teachers. I made good friends at the College and developed good working relationships with my individual teachers.

My favourite aspect of the course was the opportunity to interact while learning. The course remained highly interesting and engaging while the lecturers ensured the students continued to learn.”
