The tutors were really supportive and it was all thanks to them that I have achieved what I have. I’ve also made loads of great friends and really enjoyed my time at South Downs College.

I would say it’s a college that really balances academia with fun, there is lots of extra-curricular stuff that you can get involved in. It has a really good work/life balance.

Laura Hagedorn, A Level student

My experience at South Downs was great, it’s very different to school, and I think it’s a good step to going to University. The support was amazing, I loved all of my teachers, they helped me through everything. The College is friendly and you will succeed.
