The staff and tutors are amazing and can give you the confidence to achieve your goals. Cannot recommend this place enough. 

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.

I was made to feel that I did matter and that I was worthy. I was encouraged and supported when I thought I couldn't do it. Despite all the failures I had previously had at other places, I did it at Northern College because I was supported by people who believed in me.

Awesome tutors and a very friendly place. I wish I was still there.
