What others are saying

Everyone I’ve met has been great, from the teaching staff to cleaning staff, all really friendly and welcoming. The gardens and grounds are amazing. I’m so glad to be able to study here. 
The counselling course content was marvellous. It touched every area and I believe was integral in me becoming a success at counselling.
Absolutely loved my time at Northern College and would recommend to everyone as it’s the best thing I did.
