What do students say?

“My 3 years of study at UCNL changed my life. It built up my confidence and passion for learning. I chose UCNL because I was a mature student, and I had a 5 year old so it was brilliant that I could travel to and from university and still fit the school run in! I went into the degree wanting to change my life, and it did. UCNL is the only place that enabled me to combine successful studying with a young family”

Sam Dale Arrand , (BA) Hons in English and History
