South Devon College was the perfect option for me. It is one of the very few colleges that offer the CILEX route, enabling me to become a qualified Legal Executive. I first spoke with the tutors at an open evening – I soon realised everything I needed to know was available here and it would be the right place for my studies.Mike Davies
