"I chose Dudley College because it’s in a central location, which is useful for visiting other cities, and it’s close to Birmingham, where I have family. As a slightly older student, I came here to improve my chances of finding a good job in England, so I chose to combine general with academic English in order to improve my everyday English and to have the option of taking the Cambridge FCE exam or IELTS to prove my level of English. "I found Dudley a welcoming town and I made some really nice friends and appreciated the staff. Most importantly, my English has really improved!"

Luis, from Venezuela, studied on a 35-week combined programme.
