Student Success

At Milton Keynes College we value the successes of our students.

Celebrating success and achievement is important to us, and it is not only in the recognition of the hard work of our students, but the support from our staff and surrounding community.

We take every opportunity we can to celebrate the success of our students, whether it’s direct praise from a tutor to a student or class, displaying examples of fantastic work throughout the college, or through a ceremonial event such as our Students of the Year awards or Graduation Ceremony.

The College also recognises the achievement, effort and commitment of students outside of the classroom through extra-curricular activities which furthers their development, supports their classmates or the College.

Our Student of the Year awards allows students across the college to be recognised for their hard work, contribution to the college and outstanding performance. Read about our 2014 awards here.
