“I think College is an excellent next step as although you have moved on from school and enjoy learning in an adult environment, the class sizes are still small so you really get to know your fellow students.  I just felt so much better prepared for Uni having been at College.  I don’t know if I would have stuck it out if I’d gone there straight from school to be honest as it is quite a big jump.  My NESCol experience undoubtedly gave me the confidence to manage the demands of the degree.”

“The course, students and staff combined made for such a brilliant experience.  The facilities at NESCol are excellent and being able to develop your skills in a real life salon environment with clients is invaluable.  I can’t recommend College enough – regardless of the industry you want to go into it is a positive, inspiring environment to study in and can open the door to so many career opportunities.“
