"Since my first day at City College Peterborough, my experience has been excellent. I was welcomed and motivated by teachers. After two years of studying at City College, I was able to find a job. At this moment I feel confident to apply in my work area – credit control. City College helped me a lot with integration when I arrived in the UK. I have met many people and made good friends. The four years I studied at City College were excellent. I learned how to apply for a job and write my CV and learned many important things. Thank you all for the good support.”
