Why did you choose Reigate College?

I chose to study at Reigate College because of the facilities – in particular the Product Design workshop – and the many opportunities on offer here.

How did you find the move from school to College?

It is a big step moving from secondary school but you get used to it and it’s good preparation for going on to university. I made friends quickly and because there are a lot of students here, it’s easy to find people you get along with.

What have you enjoyed most about your courses?

My favourite subject is Product Design. I really enjoy the relaxed environment during lessons and that you get to test out lots of techniques and materials. There are also fun city and gallery trips to help give you inspiration, and the teachers are so willing to give you extra help when you need it. I’ve really valued all the advice and suggestions for my project from both my Product Design teacher and the tech staff too.

What do you think makes Reigate College a good place to be a student?

The College provides a lot of support. I found the mentoring system really helpful and it’s great to have so many opportunities to get involved with things. I chose to take part in Gold DofE which was a fun new experience and really improved my endurance.
