What Our Students Say

Carmel is somewhere where studying and socialising work in harmony. I love that we have the independence and freedom to organise our own time and college studies, whilst still being guided by our tutors in lessons.
Geography is my favourite subject because it allows you to become aware of the world around us. It gives you a real-time image of the world we live in and also lets you find out what the world could look like in the future. With Geography there are lots of opportunities for trips both in the UK and abroad. These include fieldwork in the Morecambe Bay area to collect data, a trip to Iceland and also conferences to increase our class knowledge.
The highlight of my time at Carmel has been making new friends and leading my own independent studies. There’s a great support system here and the tutors go above and beyond to see us succeed and achieve our best.
