The care, kindness and warm environment of the Pre-Degree Centre not only allowed me to grow as a designer but also as a person. Having suffered from a chronic health condition, I never thought I would make it to Higher Education, but with the amazing Art and Design tutors, I was able to exceed my expectations.
