Emma Charnley

Emma  CharnleyBA (Hons) Computer Games Art

I was struggling to find what I wanted to do at university right up to a fortnight before the UCAS deadline. I knew I wanted to do something related to art, but I wanted a secure job field to go into.

You can’t really put a price on the effect university has had on my life. It definitely seemed worth the cost to me, I can say some of my happiest memories were in those three years and now I have a great job to show for it.
