Topical Conversations


What our students say

I came to the UK about two years ago and recently started at the College. I have already been made a course rep and am enjoying the College. I chose to come to this College as there is so much you can do here, my favourite part is the skills centre. In the Sucess Centre there is always someone to help you if you are struggling with work, and so many books available. After finishing my ESOL course I am looking forward to carrying on my education. I have chosen to specialise in Health and Social Care, as I would like to give back to the community by helping people. To anyone wondering if they should come I would say if you have a dream, and want to achieve your goals, never give up; where I come from not everyone gets education, and I am really excited to start my new beginning at CAVC.
