"I’m a practical learner and I was really impressed with the science facilities at Northampton College and found the idea of learning in a lab exciting. The hands-on learning was what I had been looking for.
"The tutors are so supportive and can’t do enough for you. I loved the variety of the lessons. It gave me confidence to know that I was learning things that could be used in a future work environment.
"After completing my course I went on to work in a food lab for just under a year before I began a degree in biology at the University of Northampton. I even came back as an assistant lecturer at Northampton College for a while and I now work as a Public Health lecturer at Northampton University as well as studying for a degree in microbiology research.
"Northampton College has helped to get me to where I am today. It prepared me so well for university study as well as for work in the industry."
