"The thing I have enjoyed the most is the support; never did I expect to receive so much support!"

Monika moved to the UK from Lithuania back in 2008 and decided to study at Blackburn College before completing her degree at our University Centre.

Monika said: “I know the campus very well and I’ve made a lot of connections. The thing I have enjoyed the most is the support; never did I expect to receive so much support! That’s why wherever I go I recommend the University Centre at Blackburn College to everyone.

“My future career plans have benefited with the support from Blackburn College, including help with dealing with film photography and receiving lots of information on promoting my work.”

She added: “My tutors have always been there for me. Any struggles or concerns I had, they would always have a solution, or a Plan B. Tutorials and support were available almost 24/7 online.

“My plan after University is to still be using film cameras and to promote my work online. My dream is to see my work in galleries.”
