Michael described his time at Sunderland College as rewarding. He progressed to Laine Theatre Arts in London and is looking forward to graduating and working in the industry, doing what he loves.

He said:
“I decided to study at Sunderland College because of the welcoming lecturers and the fun environment around the campus. I liked the accessibility to the fantastic facilities at the College and being surround by great teachers who are with you every step of the way!

The best thing about the course was being able to study what you enjoy every day, learning new techniques and soaking up all the knowledge from the teachers. The facilities are fabulous, I always took advantage of the dance studios if there was any free time.

I would like to thank my teachers at college for supporting me every step of the way and always being there for me.”
