Name: Luke Taylor

Course: Acting

Result: Distinction

Next step: Returning to The Manchester College for his final year

“I chose to come to The Manchester College because of the emphasis they place on both theatre and screen work, whereas a lot of other places focus mainly on theatre. I also preferred the BTEC to the A Level because there’s more performance work than written work. I’ve got to work with people who I would never thought to group up with and made some great friends.

“I’ve had personal stuff going on, such as caring for my mum, but everyone has been so helpful and understanding. There have definitely been stressful days but if I’m feeling down, someone always pulls me to one side and asks if I’m okay.

“I’ve already recommended The Manchester College to some friends because it’s in the centre of Manchester, there are great networking opportunities and you are learning from people who are still in the industry, so you get a first hand experience of what it’s like.”

The people are very welcoming and they offer a range of different courses that will help you in the career you choose to do.
