Before I came to college, I was working fulltime. I wanted a second chance at education and to live up to my full potential. The course gave me the freedom to be creative, and taught me the skills I need to work in the games industry. After college, I’m going on to university and I can’t wait!

I decided to come to college to learn more about computing, and to develop the skills I already had. I’ve had a great time – I’ve learned a lot, and made some good friends, and I’m now progressing to the Level 3 qualification. I’ve also set myself the goal of eventually studying computing at degree level which I’m sure I’ll achieve, with the help and support of the tutors and staff here.
