Josh Harrison • Level 3 Criminology
I would definitely recommend The Manchester College. It’s a lot different, very challenging and engaging, but I have settled in so quickly and feel that I have matured a lot. I’ve found it interesting learning about social norms and how the law and crime has changed. I am so ready for my future. I’m hoping to gain some experience next year in the Forensics Department with the police.
Zuha Hussain • Level 3 Public Services
The course is very tailored to my career plan and the College has outstanding facilities. My tutors have constantly pushed me to achieve my best in and outside of class and because of their advice and guidance, I have now secured a role as a special constable within Greater Manchester Police. This will allow me to become a full time police officer once I graduate. My next goal is to complete aCriminology degree
