“My company were looking at a course to aid with my next stage in educational development, Newbury college stood out to me from the course selection they gave me as it is a well rated college and the course itself is better suited to my way of learning by being coursework based. The lecturers are always very helpful and their feedback on any assignments are really helpful in where to make improvements now and how to continue that level of detail on other assignments. The course itself it presented in a good way, it is a mixture of classroom teaching and hands on practical.”

All the lecturers have been very supportive whilst, pushing me to fulfil my full potential.

“I chose to study mechanics at Newbury College as it offers a range of practical work to take part in. I enjoy problem solving and practical subjects and my course is ideal for that. So far my favourite part has been doing an engine rebuild, where we get given an engine and have to strip and rebuild the whole thing.”

The practical work and the chance to use the computer software in a more in-depth programme was the reason I chose the study at Newbury College. I enjoy being able to be creative in my learning.
