Students have been left in the lurch by college
I would like to add some important detail to your story about students left in limbo at Ashford College (May 26).
Whilst it may be the case that some students have found courses that they hoped to take in September 2016 have been cancelled, there are some students who are part-way through a twoyear course who have been told the second year has been cancelled.
Whilst the college has offered to let them take the second year at the Tonbridge campus, this will mean considerable additional travelling time and expense for the students, and is therefore not a practical option for some, especially if they have other commitments outside of college.
It is frankly outrageous that the college can cancel a course half-way through and leave students, some of whom are hoping to go on to university, stranded in this way.
The college should immediately reinstate those courses that are in fact the second of a two year programme, and honour the commitment they made when students first enrolled for their courses. Paul Gainford, Ashford
