What our students say

  • I opted to do this course to increase my knowledge and experience in health and fitness in order to pursue a career in the health sector. The lecturers are very knowledgeable and approachable. Class sizes are much smaller than the norm which allows more interaction with the tutor.

    Paula Cramman Foundation Degree (FdSc) Exercise, Health and Fitness

  • I'm enjoying learning new things in each of the lessons and I am very excited to start on weight management and nutrition. After I have finished my degree I am hoping to get into the profession of working with obese children. All of my tutors are lovely and I feel very comfortable talking to them about any problems I have.

    Kelly DancerFoundation Degree (FdSc) Exercise, Health and Fitness

  • Having a difficult time in my life and come out the other side I decided that I wished to help others in similar situations. I have been given the "Tool Kit" for life and this course is teaching me how to use it. My aim is to complete the course and move forward to the L3. My long term goal is to do the Foundation Degree and then hopefully the Honours Degree after which I would like to gain employment working in the field of substance misuse. Under the guidance of an excellent Tutor, (Rob McGinley), the work we do is challenging and exciting and gives massive potential for personal growth and development.

  • I really like having the opportunity to study cabin crew and resort rep alongside my main course. These courses have really opened up my future career options once I leave the college.
