'I really enjoyed my two years in DIFE as it was exactly what I needed to do to allow me to progress onto the veterinary nursing course I am now studying in Wales. My teachers were great help. If there were any problems I would never hesitate to ask for help as they were easily approachable.'- Allysha Lynch (past student)
