Kirklees College have turned to their own students to tell the world about academic life.

The students are the stars of a new set of films showing what studying at the college’s various centres is like.

The college has released eight films – one for each centre – to give an idea of both the facilities on offer and hear from students in their own words about their experience.

The films are available to view online on the college website at www.kirkleescollege.ac.uk/video and were produced by Bradford company Twenty Twenty Films. They are being circulated to promote a series of open days at the colleges.
