Our higher education students often speak to our staff about the support and guidance they receive throughout their studies. Here's a selection of some of that positive feedback:

I have enjoyed my time at A&WC and will look back on it fondly. Thank you for talking me in to doing this course, I have learnt so much since then, and am sure it will stand me in good stead for the future.

I would firstly like to thank my lecturers at Abingdon & Witney College, in particular Bec, Sadie and Martin, for providing me the support I needed to complete the project and write the final report in the last year. I would also like to thank them for dealing with the stress that came with this project.

I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your valuable and constructive suggestions during the planning and development of this work-based project. Your willingness to give your time so generously has been very much appreciated. Thank you, Ian!

Sadie - Honestly, one of the coolest and most chilled lecturers I have ever had, as well as a sound person and hugely down to earth. Thank you very much for all the work you did for us behind the scenes in the 2nd year as well as in the class, we probably didn't notice it directly, you definitely tried your hardest and I am definitely appreciative of it.

I would like to express my gratitude to my supervisor, Coral Ward, for providing guidance, support and commentary throughout the course of this project and towards the final report. I also thank Rebecca Philbrook, my Course Leader, for providing me with essential resources to assist the project, and for her constant encouragement.

I would like to thank Rebecca Philbrook, for her expertise, patience and kindness throughout the process of writing this and many other academic aspects. Without your help, my academic achievements would not have been possible. You have made my time studying this degree positive and enjoyable.
