Testimonial

After taking several years out to raise my family, I spent some time researching my education and career options, as I was unsure what direction I wanted to go in. I found BFEI’s Applied Psychology course, which interested me; the Criminology and Human Growth modules in particular. I really enjoyed the course, and through the work experience, found I had great enthusiasm for Elderly Care. Since graduating with a distinction, I have returned to BFEI this year, and am enrolled in the Community Services Management course with a view to working in elderly care upon completion. I am really enjoying the experience of college life at BFEI. There is a great atmosphere around the place and I find the staff and teachers very approachable and engaging.”
