What I would highlight: There as a good variety of subjects to learn.
What could be improved: This college had just amalgamated with to others. It was the first time they had done this HNC. It as badly organised which put unnecessary pressure on the students. The teachers were unprepared and stressed. Things and classes were constantly being swapped about and changed.
Would you recommend this course?: No
