News: Why choose Nottingham College? Hear from students

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

Coming to College is an exciting way to build the future you want. But it can feel like a big step! 

We spoke to some current and former students from a range of different courses, to find out about their experiences at Nottingham College.

Amba was born with head-to-toe visible differences.

For a long time she used make-up to cover up and hide away. 

But now she’s built her confidence and is helping others by volunteering for a charity called Changing Faces.

Starting my dream course at College, and my campaigning work with Changing Faces, made me feel comfortable in my own skin, and ready to embrace my differences and help others. 

 — Amba


David outside Nottingham Playhouse

David was part of a group of our students who performed on stage at Nottingham Playhouse recently. 

We asked how it felt to get this opportunity while on a course at Nottingham College.

Acting on a professional stage and in a professional environment like Nottingham Playhouse is amazing!

Georgia, A Level Photography

Georgia finished studying here last year and went on to university. 

We asked what it was like to start as a new student at Nottingham College.

I went to Nottingham College with no idea what I was letting myself in for. But when I got there, my tutor was just magnificent. 

I was so nervous, but she made me so calm, she always encouraged me. 

She was just everything that I needed and could have wanted. That in turn made the whole experience incredible. 

It’s a lovely environment to be in. 

 — Georgia


Isa in his healthcare uniform

Isa won a silver Apprentice of the Year award at the Skills for Health, Heroes Awards. 

He was recognised for being a true role model in COVID 19, and for his dedication to raising awareness for Black Lives Matter and the BAME network across Nottingham University Hospitals Trust.

I am really enjoying my apprenticeship and getting stuck into working on the ward. 

I have learned so much over the past year and look forward to continuing my studies alongside working. 

 — Isa
