    I’m so glad I was able to spend the last 2 years focused on Art, rather than having to study 3 different subjects

    I completed two 3-month work placements in Belgium and Fuerteventura with the Erasmus+ programme. I was so grateful for the opportunity as it allowed me to gain valuable industry knowledge and experience. I’ve currently been offered a 6-month position in Turkey as a Holiday Rep with TUI.
