I chose to study at Newbury College because it was conveniently close. I also loved the course choices, such a huge range, it was very difficult for me to decide what would be best. I had a lot of support to help me choose what course would be best for my future. I have enjoyed the confidence that I have gained from my course and I am very thankful for everything the college has done for me.
