Case Studies


Level 3 BTEC Diploma Business

I chose to come to Kirklees College as I had heard that they had really good facilities. Before coming to college I didn’t know anybody, and the course has helped me make a lot of new friends who are a great support network. I’ve managed to achieve distinctions in all my assignments and this is down to the tutors.


Studying Business and Marketing Level 3

I chose this course as my strengths rely heavily on communication with people and adapting to situations with my skillset. I enjoy problem solving and the tutors are enthusiastic about guiding us on the right path. After this course, I would like to go to university to study business management to become an entrepreneur.


Studying HNC Business

I would recommend Kirklees College to anyone because it’s a great place to study. The application process impressed me as it was smooth and straightforward and the facilities at the Pioneer Higher Skills Centre are new and up-to-date. The lecturers are at the top of their game and there is extensive support and facilities to improve yourself.
