What Our Students Say

The freedom and independence that studying at Carmel enables you to have was very enjoyable. I enjoy studying Geography as it gives you an awareness of wider issues that affect the world, both physical and human. I would recommend it as all the information learnt is relevant and can be accessed easily. The course allowed me to take part in fieldwork in the Morecambe Bay area that allowed me to develop skills that will be useful in further fieldwork I will take part in at university.
