Damien described his time with us as inspiring, interactive and confidence-building.
He said:
“My time at Sunderland College has really helped me build my confidence. I’ve definitely developed my social skills. I was always really shy, but through my course my confidence has grown as the lecturers really encouraged us to work collaboratively and in teams.
“The best thing about the course is the support I’ve received from staff and I’m so grateful for all of their support.”
Damien is working towards a career in digital concept art and is continuing his studies with us in HND Art and Design.
