Great tutors and services. They will listen to you if you have any issues or questions, and will do their best to help you. It’s a relaxing atmosphere and stunning views of Wentworth castle. Love this place.

I can't rate it highly enough. I've had such a fantastic week with all the staff (and I mean every single member of staff I've met). The course, the catering - everything is great! And the building!! Stunning! Everyone should get the chance to study here. I've loved it and I definitely want to come back. 

Everything is a good experience, the courses are wonderful plus accommodation. Great food, beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, and everyone is wonderful and helpful.

Northern College did and still is changing my life; it changes people too. It opens your mind to your dreams, and makes them a reality.
