    Nathan Higgins - Computing & Systems Development HND“I chose to study at Warrington Collegiate because it offered a wide variety of courses. After completing my Level 3 Extended Diploma, I chose to do the HNC here because I liked the quality of teaching.

    “Doing the HNC/HND helped me with what I do at work as it taught me a few different techniques that I could apply to aspects of work.”
