Student case study

Samuel IT

Diploma in IT (Creative) L2

I chose my course because I am interested in games design. The college has a friendly atmosphere and the smaller classes mean we get lots of support. I enjoy the library facilities and being able to study in my own time in the quiet zones. I plan to complete my Level 3 qualification at the college and progress on to university to study for a degree in games design.
