Course Cost And Funding Options
Edinburgh College has been very good for me as the staff
have been amazingly supportive and caring. I have been able to put my learning
into practice and develop my employability skills. If I was to
tell someone who was thinking about coming to college I would say that it has
been very good for me and a worthwhile experience.
