"I love this College so much and it is a big influence in my life. I really enjoy every part of my learning and I feel that it is a result of the great teachers here. The computing course was an excellent choice for me as it allowed me to build on my knowledge and learn the practical side of computing. As an overseas student, I also receive a lot of support from the Library staff who help us with further reading outside class. I would recommend the College for so many reasons but the staff would be the biggest part."
