I attended a taster day at Southport College with my school and loved it. The facilities really impressed me and the BTEC route seemed a more manageable way for me to get where I wanted in the future. I have really enjoyed the Creative Media course, especially the opportunities it’s opened up for me. I have had the chance to get involved in extra projects such as filming our University Centre Graduation ceremony and also our College Soap Opera ‘Baffled?’ One of the reasons I chose the college was the amazing facilities available to students. Being able to use any camera, lens etc. in or out of college, is great! I am going to Manchester Metropolitan University next year to study PR and Marketing.

I chose Southport College as I had heard that it was the best in the area for media courses. I also liked the idea of a BTEC course as it would mean I spent more time doing practical work and gaining experience rather than lots of theory work for an exam. I have really enjoyed the course here; I’ve loved being given free rein on projects to develop skills as we need them and work on projects we are interested in. The staff are great and the facilities are good too. My plan for September is to go to Edge Hill University to study Film and Television production and would eventually like to work in the industry as a director.
