Did you know?: Dubai, UAE - Burj Dubai, the world's tallest building developed by Emaar Properties, it scales150 livable levels, and now surpasses the 31-year-old record of CN Tower, which at 553.33 metres (1,815.5 ft) has been the world's tallest free-standing structure on land since 1976. What our students say: Shortly after completing my carpentry apprenticeship, I progressed onto the HNC Building Studies at Bridgend College. The part-time study enabled me to continue working on a full-time basis, coupled with a very busy lifestyle. The background knowledge gained whilst working in the construction industry proved to be extremely useful and aided the development of my skills. I found the course challenging but enjoyable. I intend to return to Bridgend College to complete the top-up year to the HND, with a view to progressing to a career in site management. Jennifer Parker
