“Northern College changed my life. A year into studying here I got a job and then became a supervisor.” - Michelle
It's a life changing place. I started the access course in 2013 without a qualification to my name and not much hope. Last year I started my PhD. I'm now a different person.
Amazing college and amazing tutors. I can't believe how quick the time went. I've left not only achieving my Diploma in Humanities and Social Science; I've also taken with me confidence and aspirations to be the best I can be.
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.
