Gary chose to study at New College Durham because he wanted a high standard of education.

He said:

“New College Durham delivered a high standard of education in a relaxed environment. Different methods of teaching were used and I enjoyed getting hands-on experience whilst learning.

“The campus was very clean, modern and professional. Studying at New College Durham was an enjoyable, educational and enriching experience. I regret studying at university! I learned more in one year at New College Durham than in three years at university”.

After Gary completed his course, he decided to travel the USA and Europe. He has recently graduated from the University of Sunderland.
