What Our Students Say

James Brittain:

''My education at Selby College helped me prepare for my job role as a Business Intelligence Developer at The Skills Network, I wouldn’t be where I am today without my qualifications and the support of my excellent tutors''.

Jessica Smith:

''I've loved my time at Selby College. When I joined the IT department I became a Student Ambassador so I could help out at the open events, which included "demonstrating" the VR systems.

The class sizes are small and manageable which meant we could all get help from the tutors if we needed it, without having to regularly wait for support.’’
