The business course includes modules that have taught me basic legislations, accounting, and advertising, which has enabled me to begin advertising for real clients outside of college.
The lecturers in college are wonderful and you can always get extra support in workshops if you need it. You are offered extra opportunities such as summer schools to experience your next steps after college, so you will always be prepared and supported in your next move.
