What our students are saying

“Being at Banbury and Bicester College has helped give me the skills I need to develop my career. College is more hands on and different to secondary school. I have gained skills and, when I complete my qualification, it will be more likely that I get a job.” (Dan E., Professional Chef’s Diploma)

“I like having assignments instead of exams, because they are spread out and this helps me manage my workload better. Teachers are more open and you can share any concerns with them. It’s also great to have access to the IT facilities on campus.” (Francis D., IT)
