“I am enjoying being back in education - learning, meeting awsome people and getting my confidence back.” - Craig
Great tutors for Maths, and all the staff are helpful and friendly.
Staying residential at Northern College gave me time to breathe. Most of the learning would come about when talking with others, over meals and our free time. Walking in the garden before breakfast is inspirational.
Absolutely beautiful place to learn, stunning scenery to help set you at ease with staff and tutors that go above and beyond. I can't express how much Northern College has helped me.
Absolutely loved my time at Northern College and would recommend to everyone as it's the best thing I did.
