    The variety of subjects and the freedom to explore various themes and projects have helped me find my love for contemporary 3D work and sculpture. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about studying Art & Design. School can’t give you the hands-on experience this course does. It has prepared me for University and helped me achieve my dream of going to Glasgow School of Art!
