Ben, Sports Academy

"I would have to say the Sports Academy was the element of college that really stood out for me. The quality and support provided by the coaches was outstanding and this gave me real direction and guidance in my ultimate goal of being a professional rugby player".

Chelsea, BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Health and Social Care

"My job as an apprentice at a hospital has lived up to every expectation and more! I could not imagine working anywhere else. When I first started my job at the hospital I just thought it would be a 'normal' day to day job but it’s so much more. I get excited about going to work every single day and I always leave with a smile on my face".

Connor, Michael Caines Academy

"What I loved most about college was discovering what I want to do for the rest of my life. Learning from teachers that love the catering industry as much as I do is amazing. In the future I hope to work for the top chefs in the world, in the best restaurants allowing me to learn how to cook and create at the highest level".

Felicity, International Baccalaureate

"Although the IB has been a very challenging course, the support and help from all the teachers and other IB students has been amazing and made my time at college even more enjoyable. The independence college gives you and the sense of community within the city adds a great deal to college life".
"I loved that I could carry on with such a breadth of subjects in a smaller group of students within the larger college framework and also that the IB is an international qualification meaning that it is recognised all of the world, as travel is something that I love to do".

Habib, BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Business

"Each unit I studied on my course focused on key areas that helped me with my career path as I would need to learn this for my future profession. All the tasks I did helped with my personal development as it tested me to see if I can do presentations, write in different layouts, and do accounts and so on. I enjoyed every bit of my time at Exeter College studying business; making friends in my class, excellent teachers and becoming the person that I really am from a shy and quiet person to a more confident person."

Laura, International Baccalaureate

"I've loved the people that I’ve met on the course and the group of friends that I've made– the IB creates a kind of family feeling because of the number of subjects you study together. I couldn't single out one part of the course I've loved more than another – the teachers have been amazing and I've enjoyed all of the subjects".

Samantha, Travel and Tourism

Samantha – Winner of the National Award for Outstanding BTEC Travel and Tourism Student of the Year 2013, by Pearson UK

"I was really gobsmacked and proud when I heard I had won BTEC student of the year – my Mum and Dad are really pleased and have all my awards on the mantelpiece, my whole family is really proud. It’s great to be working as cabin crew for Easy Jet since it means I am using all the skills I learnt in the course at the college in the real field and I’m enjoying it!"
