We know that your years at College are often the best of your life.
We also understand that for some, the first few days at College can be daunting. Don’t worry, it will probably take a few days for you to feel orientated and it’s important to remember that for the first few days, everyone around you is in exactly the same boat.
To help you feel more at home when you arrive, we have created a suite of online tools to keep you connected.
Want to know more about the courses you have chosen, what you’ll be learning and where your course may take you? Our tutors have created their own Subject Spotlight videos which you can watch at any time to learn more about the course you’ll be learning.
