Eddie described his time at Sunderland College as worthwhile, fun and reaffirming. He enjoyed performing at high profile venues throughout his course and is now studying at Sunderland University.

He said:

“I decided to study at Sunderland College as I was attracted by the staff and the opportunity to perform at major venues like the Sage. I liked the lecturers and the atmosphere, it was much more friendly and relaxed than other colleges I’d been to.

We were encouraged to be independent and play in a band. This independence has helped me in further study and work.”

Eddie has progressed to Sunderland University where he is studying BA (Hons) Music.
