When I finish my Foundation Degree I plan to progress to University and do a Bio-Medical Degree and eventually work in a forensic lab.Suzanne Ramage
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!Katie Curry
