And Not Forgetting Our Former Students Who Have Gone On To Enjoy Success After Studying With Us…

“Before completing the Foundation Level 3 course at Hull College, I had little direction regarding what I wanted to do in my career beyond the general creative field. The course was perfect in helping to decide as it allowed me to try different subjects during short taster sessions - before finalising decisions for the FMP. The tasters can encourage you to test subjects that may be out of your comfort zone and widen your horizons, which is good if you’re unsure regarding your career path as I was. For reference, I selected Fine Art, Ceramics and Fashion, having only ever studied Art before. You also take part in weekly print, life drawing and art theory sessions which help develop new skills, as well as gaining crucial help and advice for life after the course.”
