Danny described his experience at Sunderland College as enjoyable and helpful. He gained a fantastic experience in New York as part of his course and it has helped him progress to university.
He said:
“I chose to study higher education at Sunderland College as I wanted to stay in the area and progress my studies within Music Practice. The campus was excellent with great facilities.
The best thing about studying here was the course as it delivered above and beyond what I expected. The course content was relevant to careers in music and encouraged everyone to progress.
I had the opportunity to visit New York, which was an amazing experience. I spoke to people there who work in the industry and it was extremely helpful.”
