The best thing 100% was the excellent teaching. The staff ensured all my learning needs were met and stretched me to achieve my very best.
The best thing about the course was the various opportunities. From workshops with professional theatre companies, to educational trips to places such as London. These opportunities helped create a better understanding and develop contacts within the industry.
The campus was safe and an enjoyable place to learn. The facilities are the best I’ve seen in the North East. I wish I could go back and do my studies again with Sunderland College.”
Courtney progressed to studying a BA (Hons) Drama top-up qualification and a PGCE. She is now a teacher at Manchester College.
