Student Stories
Jesus joined Edinburgh College 3 years ago to study an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) course to improve his English language standard. He later progressed within the College to study Tourism with English and is now in his final year of our Travel & Tourism HND course. “I really enjoy what I am doing. I never had a set plan when I moved from Spain. I came to college and knew no English but I knew I wanted to do something in tourism.”
