“I have studied at Newbury College for nearly two years now and I feel the college is working hard to ensure I obtain the qualifications I need and want. The course covers a wide range of engineering sectors, allowing me to explore different forms of engineering. The teaching staff all have different backgrounds, making the lessons far more interesting and diverse. I would like to progress onto level 4 at the new University Centre.”

“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.”
