New College Durham

Framwellgate Moor Campus, Framwellgate, Durham DH1 5ES, UK – 0191 375 4000

Pretty Good College. I’ve studied Level 3 ICT for approximately a year at this point, and the atmosphere is a lot more released than school. However, the staff aren’t particularly good at supporting students outside of lessons, especially holidays, as responses to emails can take up to a week, and with assignment deadlines only being a couple of weeks usually it does make you quite short on time. Also, if you need any additional support such as PLC’s or LSA’s, there can be difficulties. For example, when I started my course they took almost a month to start providing my PLC & LSA. I previously studied a Level 1 Catering Course via my Secondary School for 2 Years and the staff during that course weren’t particularly useful. Even after telling them I needed additional support, it was still a pretty difficult lesson. Although, certain aspects aren’t directly though the fault of the college, and my school could have helped more. Facilities at the college are pretty good, although they are rather pricey, for example they have a gym, Costa coffee, Starbucks, POD (Snack) Store, and a student-ran restaurant. There’s also a beauty salon and car repair shop (limited due to being in a college setting). Equipment for ICT Students is pretty good for example Photoshop, Microsoft office, Viso, GameMaker, Unity and a number of other industry standard softwares are provided by the college to students. Furthermore, all students have full access to Microsoft Office, and they can download it on their personal computers. Due to the college having a university building directly affiliated with it, you can do higher education after further education and you get access to a lot of in and out of college discounts. For example in the college, they provide free bus travel during college days and subsidies for Over 19 / University Courses, and free ‘school’ meals for those that are entitled. Outside of the college, you can access many offers and discounts including free amazon prime for 6 months, and half price renewal, half-price SquareSpace subscription, £50 Digital Ocean Server Credit, and a number of other discounts. The college is also a partner of the NUS & ISIC Student Discount Scheme, where for a small yearly fee of approximately £10 you can receive discounts at a number of major retailers, and you can also access student discounts which aren’t linked to the scheme, as it proves your a student. After applying for the NUS Scheme, you receive a card the size of a credit card through the post or delivered to the college within a few days, which contains your NUS Card Details in the front and your ISIC Card Details on the back. The NUS Card is for discounts in UK Retail stores, where as the ISIC Discount Card provides you free access to 2,000 additional discounts outside of the UK. I’d give the college the following ratings I each respective category: 5/5 Course Choices 4.5/5 Teaching Standard 3.5/5 Learner Support Access 4.5/5 General Facilities 5/5 ICT Facilities 5/5 Discount Scheme Overall Rating: 4.7/5 Converted to Google Rating: 4.5/5

Alot of terriable and rude people atmosphere is nice however and so are the facilities. problems get passed about until it's meaningless though.

The Open University provides high-quality distance learning for people of all ages and educational backgrounds. The joy is that their courses not only can be completed at home but are modular and so make it possible to fit them around life's varying commitments! The OU also do research.

Generally it is quite extraordinary institution which many people thought would fail but actually has been an unqualified success since it was founded in 1969.
