I've really enjoyed all the time I have to work independently and the atmosphere at Exeter College is so different and refreshing. I love it! After finishing my A Levels I'm going to do the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at college and then continue on to textiles or fashion at university.

I enjoyed the enthusiasm and passionate drive within the college. My art and design tutors were a great inspiration to me and I wouldn't be where I am now without them.
