Joanne Caskey, who completed a BTEC Level 3 in Construction and Foundation Degree in Construction and Surveying at Northern Regional College’s Coleraine campus. Joanne is now doing a degree in Architectural Technology at Ulster University.

Open days are traditionally an opportunity for students to visit the College campus of their choice - Ballymena, Ballymoney, Coleraine, Magherafelt or Newtownabbey.

Campus visits are not possible this year but by logging on to the College’s user-friendly Open Day portal, students can ‘visit’ all campuses and explore course options from the comfort of their own homes.

The College offers a comprehensive range of courses from entry to postgraduate level, including accredited qualifications for school leavers, full and part-time courses for adults, apprenticeships, professional qualifications and university accredited courses, as well as business support services.

Courses reflect local demand and are designed to close identified skills gaps.

Studying at Northern Regional College can open up all kinds of different and exciting career opportunities for people with the right skills, qualifications and motivation and, as Portstewart mother of two Joanne Caskey discovered.

Ten years after completing a BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Construction at the College in Coleraine, Joanne went back to do Foundation Degree with Distinction in Construction with Surveying. She graduated with Distinction and is now doing a degree in Architectural Technology at Ulster University.
