Carol Maclean

Student on BA Health Studies

“After coming back to the Island in 2005, I had picked up a prospectus but didn't have the confidence to apply for courses until the summer of 2010, when my lone parent adviser prompted me to "take a stroll up and see what's on offer"! Very sheepishly I proceeded to the college, not believing there would be anything suitable for someone of my age (a young 40!) and with my lack of qualifications!! Twenty minutes later, after speaking with some of the staff, I left but with a new label - STUDENT!!"

"After completing my Health, Social & Child Studies Higher course, I’ve gone on to enrol onto the BA Health Studies Degree and I’ve just passed the first year. For me the best part of my time at Lews Castle College is the commitment from the lecturers to us as students and their determination to bring out the very best in us!"
