SVQ Social Services, Children & Young People student

"After leaving school early I knew I wanted to work with children so I contacted my local college. The guidance and support I received was fantastic. After 2 years studying, I graduated at the age of 17 and now work in a nursery that I love." 

BA Business Management student

"Studying at Argyll College has given me the opportunity to study for my degree without having to go to the mainland to do so. Studying closer to home has allowed me to work, save and study. I feel at an advantage with the current Covid situation as long distance learning is what I’m used to." 

HNC Business student 

"This course helped me to increase my business vocabulary and enhanced my ability to read and write as English wasn’t my first language. I simply enjoyed studying and I liked to exchange and expand my knowledge with the lecturer and students." 

NC Social Science student

"Studying locally has been important to me as moving away from home isn’t yet a feasible option. It's also enabled me to manage my time better surrounding assessments/assignments as travel is not an obstacle." 

Digital Media & Web Development student

"While still at school I decided to study the HNC part-time over 2 years (5th & 6th year) as I wanted to study Computer Game Applications Development at university. The web development course I studied through Argyll College UHI was an entry requirement on to this course."
