Case Studies

Our graduates go on to do some great things. Here are some success stories that our alumni and students have shared with us.

Umi Aidarus BA (Hons) Social Studies NUC

“NUC is in a great location and offers an excellent selection of courses. My degree was everything I hoped for and more! The flexibility and support from NUC has definitely helped me to manage my family life and my studies simultaneously. NUC is more than just a place of study. The support from peers and staff is incredible; it's like one big family. Since graduating, I have started working as a tutor and I study a Masters in English Language and Literature at Westminster University in January."

Charlotte Condon Diploma in Education & Training (DET) NUC

"The quality of teaching on the DET/PGCE is the best I have ever experienced. I can apply what I learn to the Employability skills classes I deliver to undergraduates at NUC. As the class runs for just 4 hours a week, I have been able to fit my studies around my busy work schedule and family commitments. It has given me a new enthusiasm for the work I have been doing for over 10 years. It really is a fantastic way to gain a really credible qualification within a great institution."

Christopher Jayawardena Access to Health and Social Care NUC

"Newham College University Centre has helped me hugely. The teachers are approachable and accommodating. The course has given me many skills; I know how to do lab reports and index referencing, I have also gained a great deal of knowledge about the NHS and safeguarding services. I have now been accepted by a Russell Group University to study a Bsc in Children’s Nursing."

Marian Carr BSc Councelling NUC

“I’ve learned a lot about myself, the lecturers were just brilliant. My course delivered exactly what I wanted and the price was really good. I’ve already been offered a number of posts and have been able to secure work with a homeless men’s project before I’ve graduated; it’s been a fantastic experience!”


I got really good feedback which helped me to develop as a teacher. I can apply everything that I learned to my teaching now.
