This is what one of our university partners had to say...

Martin Fiddler - Staffordshire University
Senior Lecturer, Engineering Admissions Tutor, Aeronautical MSc and BSc Award Leader

“Graduates from Macclesfield College with a HND in Engineering with Aerospace will be considered favourably for direct entry onto the final year of the BSc (Hons) Aeronautical Technology degree at Staffordshire University. The University has a successful track record of accepting Macclesfield graduates onto the final year of the BSc (Hons) Aeronautical Degree and we wish this close working relationship to continue.”

This is what one of our students had to say...

Jan Dobson - North West Genetics Knowledge Park (Nowgen)
Project Co-ordinator, studied for Business Management Foundation Degree

“As a full-time working mother of two young girls, the thought of going back to the classroom was rather daunting; however I had reached a point in my career where I could go no higher without gaining further qualifications. I was keen to increase my management knowledge and the content of the Foundation Degree in Business Management met these requirements perfectly. I have thoroughly enjoyed my studies at Macclesfield.”

“Most of the Foundation Degree is focused around work-based assignments so it was clear to see the relevance to my own work and the impact this has had on my performance. The support given by the teaching staff is excellent. The team is strongly motivated to help students achieve their potential, with a well organised programme and lectures delivered in a range of styles to recognise the particular learning styles of the students.”

“I would strongly recommend this course to anyone who wanted to develop their knowledge of the skills of Business Management, and particularly to anyone who is considering undertaking a BA(Hons) in this area.”
