Reeves described his time at Sunderland College as enjoyable and educational. He progressed straight onto university after completing his A-Levels with us and hopes to become become a GP/A&E doctor while helping with medical education.

A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths, AS-Level Physics and Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

I knew I needed to attend university to go down my career path and I heard Sunderland College has great pass rates with many students progressing to Russel Group universities.

My teachers had a real interest in helping you get to where you wanted to go in the future.

They all offered unwavering support to help me throughout my time at college.

All of the facilities are of a high standard which really helped me to develop great skills.

It was also great to have the opportunity to complete tan EPQ which expanded my essay writing ability, preparing me in advance for assignment writing at University.

There was a good mix of traditional lecture style teaching and showing you how to be an adult learner by studying effectively at home.

I’d 100% recommend the college. The teaching was great and I felt supported during both my years there.

After finishing my last year of my MBBA in Medicine and Surgery at Newcastle University, I’m now working at the RVI in Newcastle.

It gave me the knowledge and skills needed to perform well at university.
