Quotes from Students
"Joining WLCI is a turning point of my life. Every student needs and looks for an institute which can help him guide, learn, discover & explore new things and opportunities which he/she hasn't till date. And this college has indeed provided me with the same. Unlike other educational schools, where academics are at utmost importance, WLCL has placed most emphasis on applied knowledge which is much more essential, and an integral part in a student's life to develop his horizon and capabilities and nurture his potential."

Doing my PGDBM at Wigan & Leigh and the apprenticeship at Arvind Brands Ltd., have equipped me well to deal with live cast studies. Some solutions look good on paper, but on field you need to rework things and adjust to the realities. This is where maturity or experience builds up.
Moreover, working with Arvind Brands Ltd., has given me enough exposure to the functioning of the organization which helps one understand the corporate behaviour.

currently pursuing a Degree in Animation at The University of California, USA has been selected for a prestigious award and his photographic work to be published in the Photography Laureates anthology.
Unni exhibited his formidable talent in sketching and photography from the very beginning. His keen interest in compute software could be seen in his assignments. He was selected by Toons India, a division of Walt Disney productions for a year's internship. After completing his internship, he rejoined Wigan, turning out some outstanding assignments. His photography reflects a special rapport between him and his subjects, both animate and inanimate. His effort to capture a very special angle or the right shade and light makes his outdoor shots outstanding. This well deserved award comes as recognition of his talent which one is likely to come across in National Geographic or other channels of equal repute in the years to come. Wigan is proud of Unni and wishes him the best for the future.

"Through out the centuries there were men who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but their vision"
The above is rightly quoted by the famous writer and novelist Ayn Rand. It is the vision of an individual that drives him to achieve the unattainable. Four years before when I had joined WLC, I had ideas but no clear-cut vision. The college imparted useful formal education through its comprehensive modules taught by industry specific faculty. It groomed me professionally by providing a successful industry interface through an apprenticeship program. And finally gave me a vision and a much needed direction by placing me in a leading management consultancy.
Devshree Bhardwaj, PGDBM, Batch 2002-2006
"I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging of the future but by the past."
Very truly said by Edward Gibbon, in my case the one lamp I would like to refer as Wigan and Leigh College which has secured my future with its quality of education and industry interaction programmes. Right now I'm working in a multinational and all my decisions are based on what I have learned in my classes and from the experienced gained from the apprenticeship progranme.

"It was a great journey with Wigan & Leigh College. The best part of doing Post Graduation at WLC is the Traineeship Programme.
