Quotes from our students

See below for some quotes and experiences from our students who experienced life at York College OUTSIDE the classroom:

“Getting involved with Xtra curricular has developed me as a person. Before coming to college I wouldn’t get involved in clubs or extra activities because I saw them as unimportant. Now that I have joined the Sirius group, I’ve made so many new friends and I’ve learnt so much about the world around me.”

“My Instagram is looking great since going to photography club, I’ve now got a theme for it and know how to enhance my images using Photoshop.”

“Playing football breaks up my day and I get the chance to spend time with friends on other courses.”

“Taking part in an Anti-extremism workshop was interesting. I learnt that becoming extreme isn’t always intentional. It helped me understand how easy it is to be targeted and what issues different people face.”

“I didn’t realize I could learn another language (Italian) for free whilst doing my course.”
