• Studied: ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
"Studying really helped me improve my English skills and increased my confidence."

Jolanta moved to the UK from Poland and enrolled on the ESOL course at Blackburn College to improve her English skills.


“I studied the Entry Level ESOL course and found it so beneficial that I progressed onto Level 1 and 2.

“Studying really helped me improve my English skills and increased my confidence. It is because of these courses that I am now able to study for a Foundation Degree in Business at the University Centre at Blackburn College.

“The course has definitely widened my horizons and I am now planning to pursue a career within corporate business.

“I chose to study at Blackburn College initially because it was local and I have three small children.

“Studying here has provided me with an excellent progression route from the ESOL Entry Level programme to degree level, and has enabled me to study for a UK Top Ten University degree (85% of degree programmes are awarded by Lancaster University), whilst studying on my doorstep.

“The staff at Blackburn College have all been really helpful and supportive and know exactly how to bring the best out of adult learners.

“I would definitely recommend studying the ESOL course if English is your second language.”
