Student stories

“Northern College made it possible for me to study my Bachelors, Masters and PHD. I am now a tutor in professional policing. ” - Natalie

Learn more about Natalie's story

I could not have wished for better tutors and fellow learners; they made this experience very special.

I worked in various roles for 11 years before training to become a tutor. It was the best thing I have ever done. I get to teach young people and adults and can provide real life scenarios to help them to understand the subject. 

This is the most supported I have ever felt in my education and, because of that, my work load has always felt manageable.
