Computing & IT, Graphic Design

Why did you apply to Coulsdon Sixth Form College?

I really liked the atmosphere plus the range of courses suited me. The teachers were really enthusiastic at the open events the computing and graphics facilities swung it for me.

What is your favourite subject and why?

Graphic Design because we learn a huge range of skills. Even though we have themes to follow, there’s freedom to learn what I want to, including experimenting with colours etc.

How have you found the teaching?

Both the Graphics and Computing staff have been amazing. Everyone is so enthusiastic.

What are your plans after College?

I would like to go to the University of Kent & Canterbury to study Multimedia Design and Technology. The course will allow me to utilise my strengths in computers and graphic design.

What are you looking at career wise?

I would like to either go into gaming or animation or even the marketing and advertising industry.

Have you any advice for students looking to apply to Coulsdon Sixth Form College?

Go with what you want to do and not what others want you to do. You have to enjoy the course as you’ll be doing it for 2 years!
