Alumni Profile

Sport Level 3

“I enjoyed the interaction with tutors. They were a big part of my decision to study at Barnsley College as they sold it to me at an open day. They were better than the teachers I had at school or university. The facilities were good when I was a student and they are now world class - I wish I was a student there now!”
