Level 3 National Extended Diploma in IT - IT Professional

I definitely recommend SERC. At SERC, it feels like the learning caters to you rather than you catering to the learning, so anyone who wants to carve their own path, come to SERC.

Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy General

I am really enjoying the course so far and especially enjoy all the practical experience. We learn so much on the course - waxing, makeup, facials, eyebrows, eyelashes – as you can imagine, I am very popular at home!

Level 3 National Extended Diploma Digital Manufacturing (Computer Engineering)

Coming to SERC was one of the best decisions I ever made; in my experience SERC is a lot easier to learn in, you get great support from tutors and other departments for things like finances and mental health.

Level 3 Technical Diploma in Art and Design

Right now, we are learning about printmaking and pottery, so we are doing a lot of research around printmakers and ceramic artists, I’m enjoying it a lot, however my favourite area of the course is fine art – I love painting.

Level 3 National Extended Diploma in Sport

I enjoyed the variation of topics on the course. There was a lot of practical work and team assignments. We learnt a lot about anatomy and all the different muscles which was interesting.

Level 3 Apprenticeship NI in Electrical Installation

I am in class doing theory work once a week and the rest of the week I’m out working with my employer, so the course suits me well as someone who enjoys a more practical-based education.

Level 3 Apprenticeship NI in Fire and Security Systems

Coming to SERC one day a week is great. On that day, we are consolidating our learning on the job with all the theory so there is time to clarify anything you are covering that you are not sure about.
