Meet Our Students

Want to know what it’s like to study at Matthew Boulton College? Want to get an insight into life at the college? There’s no better way to find out what’s great about studying with us than from the students themselves. Here are just a handful of our recent success stories …

Osaze - Dental Technology

“It’s a great environment to learn in.”

Osaze’s interest in dental technology began four years ago in his school in Italy where he was given the option to study the subject as a vocational qualification.  He is now continuing his studies at Matthew Boulton College.

“Being in college is really enjoyable,” he said.  “On some days, I spend between three and five hours in a lab and on others I’m doing theory work in the classroom on things like anatomy and studying the chemical compounds of materials.

“It’s a great environment to learn in.

“Next year, I’ll get to do some work experience in a private laboratory.  I’ll also get to use more CADCAM and digital equipment to produce restorations.

“Going forward, I see myself at university doing a clinical dental technology degree,” he continued.  “I’d then like to follow this up by spending time in a laboratory before setting up my own practice.

Manahil – A Levels

“The college environment makes you feel more grown-up.”
“The college environment makes you feel more grown-up,” said Manahil, who achieved A grades in history and religious studies and a B in English. “The teachers at Matthew Boulton College are completely in touch with today’s world, so they can explain how young people can be successful in their studies and what to expect when they’re in work.
“There was a lot of coursework and revision to get through but it has been totally worth it. I’ve come away with a bigger and better perspective on life.”
Manahil is going on to study English and history at the University of Birmingham.

Josh - Horticulture

“I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to stay sitting down. This course really lets me get my hands dirty.”

Josh describes the best part of his Horticulture Diploma Level 2 course as the variation and challenges that are on offer. The 17-year-old loves being active in the community and enjoys discovering new information on the subject every single day.
Josh said: “I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to stay sitting down. This course really lets me get my hands dirty, while at the same learning scientific aspects that have come in extremely useful.

“As well as assessments in planting different types of trees and plants, we also have to learn the latin names of everything we plant.

“The course also lets me keep fit and since we have such a big group, I get to mix with a variety of different age groups.”

In the future, Josh is hoping to become self-employed in the horticulture business.
