Before this course I always dreamt of having my own salon but never knew how. Now I feel like I have confidence and ability to make this happen. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone that has the same dream.

Studying here has given me opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible if I’d gone to a bigger university. It’s meant I’ve been able to keep my part time job and has helped me to manage my time better.

Before I came to study here, I was recovering from a serious illness which meant I couldn’t continue with my previous career. I decided to return to education, and I wanted to study locally so I could work at the same time.

I work as a buyer in the aerospace industry and I chose to study this course because I wanted to further my career. At first I thought I’d have to study full time to earn my qualification, but learning here allows me to balance work and my study.
