When I finish my Foundation Degree I plan to progress to University and do a Bio-Medical Degree and eventually work in a forensic lab.Suzanne Ramage
I passed my Essential Skills in English after taking a community course with NWRC, through the Roe Valley Residents Association. The class was very relaxed and I had a brilliant tutor in Conal McNickle. I would highly recommend taking a class at your local community hub, and I’m now considering further learning with the College.Kathryn Morgan (Limavady)
