    Is New College in England any good. I am from England, but I am currently studying abroad. I should have around 8 IGCSEs when I leave high school. Is it a good option?

    Just an edit. It is actually called NEW College. It is based in Redditch.

    Haven't hard of it before, but of course there is no reason I would've. What course are you wanting to do?

    I know you said you are from the UK, but have a look at this link…
    Bogus Colleges

    Apologies for the picture.

    I haven't thought about a course yet. Stupid I know, but I just wanted to do some research on colleges around the Midlands area. A friend of mine is going to NEW College, so I wanted to check it out.

    Does this affect me? I am a full British national so this shouldn't matter. Yeah, the picture is pretty bad :D.

    Only in so far as there has been a spate of bogus colleges recently… but otherwise no.

    ^^^Yes, and they're not allowed to have international students because they're so bad that the UK government even thinks they're dodgy.


    I've never heard of New College. I just went to their website, and it was the dodgiest uni website I've ever been to. Quite honestly, that alone would scare me away. Forget it. Go somewhere reputable. Otherwise, it's a waste of money and 3-4 years of your life.
