The best part about studying at South Devon College is the tutors, I had a brilliant AAT tutor that was very supportive and helpful. The College was a nice environment to be in, I felt that it was sociable, but not intimidating. My advice for those looking to study AAT would be to study hard and you will achieve things that you didn't think were possible!Tasmin Reid
