"I have really enjoyed studying at Carshalton College. You get a lot of freedom for self-study and using computer facilities which has really made the difference, as the more effort I put in, the more experience I gain. The friendly staff have helped and supported me to achieve the qualifications that I needed to progress in to University." Thierno Diallo
