I can’t thank the tutors enough; they have been wonderful
Achieved: First Class Honours & Industry Award for Innovation and Enterprise
“I was overwhelmed to get a first in my degree, I can’t quite believe it. I was also really surprised to be awarded the Industry Award for Innovation and Enterprise by judges for my final degree project; I feel very privileged to be recognised by industry experts for my work.
“I think the highlight of my course has been taking part in the annual Art and Design show. It was nerve wracking to have my work on display, but it was also a fantastic experience and one I won’t forget.
“I had started a degree elsewhere but left when I became pregnant with my son. I’ve really enjoyed returning to education as it’s helped me to find my identity again away from being a parent and given me a confidence boost.
“I’ve really enjoyed the social aspect of the course too, meeting new people while learning new skills and techniques.
“I can’t thank the tutors enough; they have been wonderful. They are always on hand to give extra support if I’ve needed it and are very knowledgeable.
“I’m currently selling my designs online and am soon due to have some of my designs in a number of local shops.”
