12 student testimonials from the ‘comments’ book

We recently found a few of our student ‘comment’ books that had been safely tucked away in a cupboard. We ended up poring over the pages, reading the hand-written entries and reminiscing about past students and their college experiences. Happily, we discovered many positive and enthusiastic comments from students who had completed their course and had taken the time to reflect on their time at the college before going off into the wide, world of events.

Seeing testimonials such as these gives us a lot of satisfaction because we consider that making a positive impact to our students’ lives through education is our greatest achievement. It’s a reminder about the important part that learning can play in someone’s life and we’re happy to be a part of that.

In saying that, we think that it’s high time for some of these ‘Dear CoEM’ gems to come out of the cupboard. It’s a great opportunity to highlight past student ‘highs’ and give ourselves a pat on the back at the same time. Thought you might be interested too!

Dear CoEM

Honestly when I saw the CoEM site and looked at the student feedback I always thought they were fake! But how wrong I was. I absolutely enjoyed and loved the course. CoEM is one of the best colleges, both theoretically and practically. I cannot praise this place enough. I am actually sad that it is over. Thank you so much again. p.s don’t ever change staff unless the new staff is as great as the staff now!

Dear CoEM

Without a doubt the [Event Manager] program was incredibly valuable. The most valuable thing being all the contacts you make in the industry who are more than willing to guide you in the right steps professionally.
