Student Story

Student Story

“I chose to study at Harrow College as it was close enough to travel and it was recommended to me. I enjoy studying here because the course is enjoyable, very interesting and worthwhile. The teaching is good and I find learning more interesting. After my course I plan to study social work at university.”

Krystal Shannon, Health & Social Care Level 3

“I took Access to Social Sciences and Humanities course and find it challenging but very rewarding. I find it more effective than A Levels and the teachers are helpful in ensuring you achieve the highest possible grade. It is giving me the necessary skills to be able to go to university, where I intend to study for a degree in sociology.”

Rebecca Dalglish, Access to Social Sciences & Humanities

“I chose Harrow College because it is convenient and easy to access by public transport. The people have been friendly and welcoming and I’ve enjoyed meeting new friends who share the same interests as me. I would definitely recommend the course. The teachers are very helpful and their knowledge is extensive. I think the teaching is of a very high standard. In the future I would like to pass on my knowledge through teaching or run a cake shop.”

Cris Muldoon, Sugar & Porcelain Workshop (Adult short course)
