“I started with my English GCSE and just completed my Access to Higher Education course - I can't believe where Northern College has taken me.” - Fran
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.
