With the help of the staff I have been able to progress from Level 2 to 3, and I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I got a distinction on my first assignment! There are a lot of activities that take place outside of the classroom to reinforce what we learn within the classroom, such as visits to employers and residential trips, including a trip to Disneyland Paris, where we were able to learn about mechanics and schematics of different rides.”

I am always on a computer and spend most of my free time working on graphic design projects. I recently won a Collegewide competition to design the front cover for The Voice (the higher education magazine). The magazine provided a perfect platform for me to showcase some of my technical ability.”
