Kyeron received the Brittan scholarship to help support him through his studies at Teesside.
'I thank Teesside University for believing I was a student worth considering. My journey at university has only just begun but I can't wait to see what's in store for me.'
I want to become a 3D character artist and a degree in computer games art is essential for this career. My college teacher at the time recommended Teesside as it is one of the best universities for computer games – and now he also teaches here himself.
I was also attracted to Teesside because, after losing my mum during my first year of college, I didn’t want to move too far away from my dad. I was really lucky that the perfect university for computer games art happened to be an hour away from my family home.
The best thing about my course is that I have the freedom to create whatever art I want – I’m not restricted to just one or two different assets.
My favourite module so far has to be 3D Modelling. I get lost for hours in my creations. Every time I work on a piece my passion to achieve my dream burns even brighter.
I was given a Kickstarter Award of £500 to help with my first year – this was hugely helpful. I am also very grateful to have received a Brittan scholarship – I receive £7,500 across my course because of my college grades and because I made Teesside my first, firm choice through UCAS. I would like to thank Lady Brittan for giving me this opportunity and thank Teesside University for believing I was a student worth considering.
I think the services are great and I use the library a lot, not just for work but also for group activities. I also love the fact that sports teams have a lovely new pitch to play on.
I’m currently staying in Central Halls and I really enjoy it. There is a great atmosphere and I have made some friends for life who I’ll be moving in with next year.
I enjoy the Students’ Union and take part in socials with the American football team. I’m a member of the American football club, game creation society and the League of Legends. I enjoy going to the cinema but I spend a lot of time on my PC as I can’t pull myself away from learning new things.
I would definitely recommend my course and the University – I’ve had a great experience so far.
The portfolio and contacts I’ll leave university with will be invaluable and should set me on the right road, as long as I put in the hard work too. My journey at university has only just begin but I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me.
