"Out of a time of family tragedy and crisis I have turned my life around and feel such hope for my career as an artist. My world had contracted into a dark place but now feels wide, bright and something to conquer. I’m receiving great feedback about my sculptural porcelain and have more ideas for exhibiting around the country.
My degree at York College was the springboard to a whole new life. I feel invigorated, inspired and full of passion for my new career as an artist."
BA (Hons) 3D Design & Creative Practice
“I met my careers advisor at my previous school and we looked at what I was academically strong at and what I enjoyed. York College, which is fairly local to me, offered a wide range of courses and I felt that the Level 3 Construction and the Built Environment was best suited to me. After finishing the Level 3 in 2019, I decided to stay on and complete the HNC course as it was the next logical step for me in achieving my future career goals.
York College has been vital to my success. If I hadn’t attended the Career Open Events that the College puts on, then I would never have found Simpson and wouldn’t be where I am today. The tutors are very supportive and will always go out of their way to make sure you understand task and make you feel comfortable in the environment.”
