For anyone who has never been to college or if it has been a long time since you were in college I would 100% recommend OFI. As a mature student I was nervous about returning to education, but the college has a very supportive environment, and I really cannot say enough about how amazing the teachers are. The other staff in the college (the caretakers and canteen staff) are lovely too; Everyone makes you feel welcome. Social events are also held throughout the year for holidays like Halloween and Christmas to name a few – They are fun, and they give you an opportunity to meet and socialise with students who are studying other courses. I’ve enjoyed my time here at OFI and made some good friends as well as having learned some great skills.
