"Congratulations on achieving your higher level qualification.
Completing a higher level programme is a significant achievement that reflects the dedication and hard work you’ve put into your studies and future career.
I wish you every success for the future."
What some of the Class of 2021 have to say about studying higher education with us.
Foundation Degree Events Management and BA Honours Business Management
Gower College Swansea was the ideal location for me to complete my degree studies as I completed my Level 3 business qualification there. The process forward into the degree was simple and straight forward. It made my transition from Level 3 to Level 4 less stressful and daunting.
One of the positives of studying at the College, would be the support from the lectures when completing assignments. Some lectures would even give their support to help with different modules assignments they might not necessarily be teaching us. They would provide their support and break down assignment briefs much clearer, so we had a complete understanding of the requirements to get the highest mark outcome.
Since leaving the College, I have been lucky enough to secure a full time job working within the sporting events industry. After being sent on my first year for placement with the company, I was offered a part time job with them whilst I continued my degree. Now I’m lucky enough to be working full time and experiencing loads of new opportunities.
Gower College Swansea was the perfect opportunity for me to get a degree in better-suited surroundings, whilst also being closer to home. The class sizes were what appealed to me most. The College is very lenient and flexible with your studies and considers the fact that some people have full time jobs."
Education Learning and Development
I decided it was time to return to college to update my qualifications and go to the next level.
Being a mature student has benefited me as I have a vast amount of knowledge and experience that I can call upon to help me complete the assignments. The lectures and library staff are very helpful and provide you with plenty of support and guidance. The library has an excellent selection of books that you can access both online and in the higher education library.
I decided to study at Gower College Swansea because I didn’t quite feel ready for university. I really liked the way the lecturers delivered the course, they did it in a professional, yet laid back way making me feel comfortable and I could approach them at any time.
What some of our higher education team wanted to say to the students.
