I completed both the Animation Drawing Studies (CDS) course and the HND in Illustration (AIH) and I am so grateful for everything I learned while at BCFE. I was given direction and feedback by tutors but was also given the freedom to explore my own style and ideas. This means everyone has graduated with a completely unique and original portfolio. I loved the supportive and honest environment in the college and I knew I could ask my peers for advice and critiques when I needed. I also gained the opportunity to go on the Erasmus+ programme in February 2020 when I worked as an illustrator for the Esplora Science Museum in Malta. My work improved so much during my three years at BCFE and so has my confidence in pursuing my dream career.
