I have been here two months now and I couldn't wish for a better place to study. I'm studying Health Science and it has many interesting modules. My tutors are amazing... Thank you to all the staff at Northern College. You couldn't do your job any better! Cannot wait to progress. 

I would recommend  Northern College to anyone looking to develop a long term academic career in a safe and healthy environment with loads of inspiration and caring staff to work with.  

Northern College for adults changed my life. I did short courses and an Access to Higher Education course. I am now a midwife with a first class degree.
