I prefer HNDs because they are practical as opposed to only being based on theory. In the last year I have gained practical skills for industry, such as using machines, and I hadn’t had the opportunity to do this in my country. Now I’m flexible to work in different industries, thanks to the skills I have learned in the workshops at college. I feel confident that I now have the necessary skills for a job or an internship.
I have made some really good friends from different countries while I have been at the college. Some of them helped me settle in when I first arrived, showing me around Nottingham, and I have also made a good friend from India on my course. I would recommend this college to a person considering studying in the UK, because it’s the perfect place for engineering. I think it’s even better than university because it’s a practical course. The staff are really helpful, friendly, and supportive. There is no need to make an appointment if you have a question; you can approach them at any time - I’ve even asked while they were having lunch!
After finishing my studies, I hope to complete my Aircraft Maintenance Licence, so that I can work in the aeronautical engineering.
