Student Profile

Darren Renwick BTEC National in Sport “I chose Chichester College because of its reputation for sport, especially as I could specialise in obtaining a Golf Diploma. I’m studying for a National BTEC in Sport and specialising in Golf. I have played for England at Junior Level and in January went to South Africa representing my country. The College gave me time off to go and the tutors made sure I stayed up to date with my assignments whilst I was away. All the tutors are really nice people, helpful and supportive. I’m carrying on at Chichester College for my second year and then intend to go to the University of Tennessee in the USA for a four year degree course. Eventually I want to become a professional golfer.”
