    “West Thames College was the perfect place for me. The tutors and students are very close, like one big family. The course is the perfect combination of practice and theory and I had the chance to explore different types of theatre and acting styles. My plan for next year is to go straight on to the second year of a BA Hons in Drama at the University of Greenwich.”

  2. Anam Mazhar

    HND Applied Biology

    “The course is really interesting and covers a broad range of topics. The teachers are really knowledgeable. There’s one-to-one help from tutors and they give really good advice about finding work placements and experience. After the course I’m hoping to go to uni to ‘top up’ for a degree.”

  3. Ashley Zac Coyle

    HND Specialist Makeup

    Ashley Zac Coyle

    “The tutors are industry professionals and their knowledge of the makeup industry is incredible. Throughout the two years on the course, I’ve built up lots of confidence and learned so much about makeup. I’ve also had the opportunity to be part of the makeup team for the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games and was selected by Greg Cannon for the United Makeup Artists Expo.”

  4. Asja Dally

    HND Creative Media Production

    Asja Dally

    “The teachers are so inspiring and they bring out the best in everyone. They’ve brought out skills in me that I thought I wasn’t capable of! I participated in the filming of the ‘Out of the Box TV Challenge’. It was really hard work, but it was a great opportunity to meet amazing people and industry contacts.”

  5. Daniella Sutherland

    HND Performing Arts

    Daniella Sutherland

    “It’s nice that we have our own Higher Education [HND, Foundation Degree or BA Hons Degree - i.e. university level qualifications at Level 4 and higher.] common room. You can take a break from studying and chat with friends, catch up on emails and watch TV on the plasma too.”

  6. Danielle Willemsen

    HND Dance

    Danielle Willemsen

    “Both of our contemporary teachers are brilliant choreographers and dancers in their own right. Because they are still involved with the dance environment, they are able to help with up-to-date, realistic advice to guide me in making plans for the future. I'm completing my Bachelor's degree at the Creative Academy, affiliated with the University of West London.”

  7. Julie Allen

    FdA Early Years Care & Education

    Julie Allen

    “One of the key things about this course is how it makes you a better professional. For example, the research into government policies, such as Every Child Matters, allows you to thoroughly understand the care industry and transfer this knowledge directly into the workplace. My lecturers prepared me perfectly for university – I’m now completing my BA at Kingston University.”

  8. Natalia Walaszek

    HND Travel and Tourism Management

    Natalia Walaszek

    “The course is really good because we learn about the theory and the practical side of working in the tourism industry. The classes are small, so it’s easier to ask questions. In the future I’d like to live in Australia for a while and get some experience working as a travel agent.”

  9. Rachel Nelson

    HND Media Production

    Rachel Nelson

    “One of the most appealing aspects of the course is how we’re taught so many aspects of the media industry. Whilst I’ve loved learning how to operate the industry-standard equipment, I’ve also enjoyed learning about directing, producing and sound recording. The scriptwriting lectures have been my favourite though, and it’s something I’d now really like to pursue a career in – incredible, as I had no idea about it before starting the course!”

  10. Tim Davies

    HNC Music Production

    Tim Davies

    “It’s a really good course. I work full-time [Full-time courses consist of 12-16 hours study per week. International students on full-time courses must study a minimum of 15 hours per week.], so it being half day on a Tuesday is great. The studio facilities are really good and are much better than those at other colleges and even universities that I looked at. The tutors are very good and really helpful. They have lots of experience and you can always ask them lots of questions.”
