From my experience at GCC I found it great that the classes are small and you get plenty of one on one time with the tutors, they are all very approachable and extremely helpful when it comes to assignments and projects. GCC is a great place to learn, make friends and prepare for the next step in your life whether it be going onto further education within the college or moving onto University or IT or even to seek employment.
