What our students say

My favourite aspects of College have been the small class sizes and the bonds I have made throughout the course. Everyone is particularly close knit which has made the learning process far more enjoyable. During my time at College I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work on a website for an archaeologist of the Great War at Bristol University. I then presented my work to the College’s Senior Management Team; this has been a major confidence boost for me as well as having been an extremely worthwhile experience.”

Bethany completed the Applied Computing Top-up Degree and is considering postgraduate education with the ultimate aim of becoming an IT consultant.

My greatest achievement has been my involvement in the redesign of Padma Glastonbury’s website. Padma Glastonbury is a local shop which ran a College wide competition to give their website a facelift. My group took part and won! I loved the challenge of creating a product to a given specification, and knowing that I resolved a problem with my peers. Delivering the final solution to the client was a very satisfying experience.”
