Thomas Heasman, who just completed his UAL Level 3 Film and TV Production Extended Diploma, plans to study Media Production at Brighton Film School.

He said: “I found all my lecturers and support staff really helpful. The study centre was a great place to get the help that I needed.”

Lucy Dunning said: “This course was such a fun experience, meeting new friends and learning through practical lessons.”

Havant Campus is known for being the A Level Centre of Excellence.

Many HSDC A Level students go on to study at Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group Universities.

A 10am start provides more invaluable contact time with expert lecturers than other colleges in the area.

Katherine Lai, who achieved three A*'s in her A Levels and is planning to study history and politics at Oxford University, said: “I'm extremely happy that I made the decision to go to HSDC Havant out of all the other colleges in the area.

“I especially want to thank all my teachers who have supported and helped me throughout the two years and to make my application.”

Rand Ismail, who received two As and one A* and plans to study for a pharmacy MPharm degree at Portsmouth University, said: “My experience at Havant helped me gain the confidence I needed to decide my career and pursue it as best as possible.”

Apprenticeship students at its South Downs Campus can earn while they learn in a setting reflecting long-term career aspirations with the support of work-based trainers.

New T Levels, with early years and childhood, digital and construction routes, provide a mix of classroom learning and at least 45 days of on-the-job placements (315 hours) with an employer.
