I was working as an Early Years Educator before coming to Sunderland. I found myself at a time in my life where I would regret not taking the plunge and applying to university. Choosing the University of Sunderland was easy because I wanted to do a ceramics course while still being close to home.
My favourite part of the BA (Hons) Artist Designer Maker: Glass and Ceramics course is the people, the workshop space, the knowledge and the idea sharing. The facilities are excellent, and the course enables you to really develop as an artist.
My advice to prospective Glass and Ceramics students? Absolutely come and study at Sunderland! I am from the North East so I am biased but studying here offers not only a great time on campus, but it’s also only a short distance to open spaces, beaches, other cities, shops and nightlife. What’s not to like?
I am currently enrolled on the MA Visual Practice course. Studying at the University of Sunderland is fabulous, it’s the best decision I have made in a long time.”
