  Current and former students give their perspectives of studying at YMCA George Williams College:

"The Level 3 Diploma course was very beneficial for me. It provided a good stepping stone, in regards to gaining my university place at the College."

Everton Hylton

"I am writing to thank you very much for everything over the past 5 years. I enjoyed the BA(Hons) in Informal Education course tremendously and cannot begin to describe how much I feel that I have benefited from the experience, not only in my work environment but in the rest of my life too. You may know that I was recently promoted and I know had I not attended the course, this would not have been possible."

David Hattersley

"The Foundation Degree in Informal Education course has encouraged me to reflect on myself holistically - as a professional and an individual. There is regularly allocated time for discussion with fellow students with a view to enhancing our youth work practice and learning from each other."

Current Second Year Student

"The Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work course has had a massive impact on me - I think more about the effects of my interactions with young people. My written skills have also improved."

Yasmin Patel

"The College provides a great range of perspectives on youth work from the lecturers. The classes are small and there is a high level of support."

Current Full Time Undergraduate Student

"The College has helped me to access financial support so I can continue my studies and there is great support for students like me with dyslexia."

Current Third Year Student

"I believe that without the financial support of the student bursary scheme (currently funded by Jack Petchey Foundation and BarCap) many of us would have found it hard to continue with our studying because of ecconomic pressures. Receiving the bursary cheque, especially when it was not expected was the best! The boost it sent around the Student Common Room was very exciting and made individuals feel cared for and appreciated."

Shelia Durand

"Without the Level 3 Diploma in Youth Work I would have not have been able to move onto the BA(Hons) in Informal Education course and ultimately follow my current career in youth and community work. I am now a Senior Project Worker with Catch 22 - working with young people at risk of offending and social exclusion. In my job I can give back the knowledge that I have learnt at the College and make an impact on the lives of hundreds of young people in my local community."

Eben Teferi

"The whole ethos from YMCA George Williams College has been excellent. It's been nurturing, supportive and helpful.The course is also well organised and enjoyable."
