How did find your course?

The course was a brilliant opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded students and lecturers while working on professional briefs. We had access to a newly refurbished computer room
with state-of-the art technology allowing for the best learning experience. One of the best things about the course was having lectures and briefs set by outsourced professionals such
as Atomhawk and Ubisoft. They were an invaluable asset to the course and gave us an insight into how studios worked with concept artists.

What did you think of Middlesbrough and the campus?

I stayed in Woodland accommodation, which was centrally located to town and campus. I made many new friends while living there who I am still in contact with now. The social aspect of being a student was great, and the campus allows for students to take up new sports and hobbies.

Have you been in work since graduating?

Since graduating I have worked in several industries including fashion, contemporary fine art, theme park design and games design, and I’m currently freelancing which opens up some great opportunities across a range of sectors. My course gave me invaluable knowledge and experience of the industry and a base skill level to build upon.
