Student Testimony:

 

Since i started at WSC my life has completely changed.  I have made better friends, the course itself has made me a better person.  Whilst i was at secondary school i did not want to be there but it is totally different at college.  I actually want to be there, the course is very interest, i am doing business and tourism, i am so intrigued by this course.  My course director is really fun but can be strict some of the time but the teachers treat us like adults, they treat us with respect, not like at school when the teachers there treated the students as children.
