"I came to Brighton College on the recommendation of a friend. I liked the education best, as it was straight to the point and the lessons were really for the future."
Lady Anne Liwanay
"My previous work experience was data-entry for an environmental lab. I was not satisfied or happy with my chosen career. I want to learn more than just the technical part of the job. I have learned so much and the instructors are very knowledgeable and inspiring."
"It was clear to me from the beginning that Brighton College was a smart choice. The registration process was straightforward and uncomplicated. The team of staff helped with everything from the initial college application to completing the Student Loan documentation. Brighton College provided me with the opportunity I needed to become successful within the career of my choice."
Hoai Chau Nguyen
"I decided to attend Brighton College because of the short and helpful program options. I could save a lot of time getting my degree. The classes are small, so I had more chances to discuss with the instructors and classmates. People are very friendly and fun here. Felt like a family. I am glad to say I was happy here and I know my decision to study here was right."
Mary Jean Amaza
"Before attending Brighton, I took Bachelor of Science in Accounting in the Philippines. I worked in accounting and then shifted into caregiving. Challenge in our country and hard to find a job that pays well. I liked the environment; I was treated as a friend and family. Everyone was approachable. You can always see a smile on their faces. Instructors were very helpful. I have learned a lot and [the experience] made me confident."
