Chloe graduated in 2016 with an HND in Professional Cookery and Patisserie and went on to her dream job as a pastry chef at the Gleneagles Hotel.

During my time at the college I got the opportunity to do work experience, my lecturers supported me and helped me find jobs. I still go to them for support now.

What do our students think?

On my first day in college, I knew nothing about motion graphics but the lecturers' support, knowledge, and passion allowed me to learn everything I needed to start a job in the industry. The experience in college allowed me to apply to university where I could continue my learning journey. Currently, I am working as a Digital Designer in a Glasgow based post-production company as well as finishing my 4th year at University. Learning in an industry-standard environment makes you more comfortable, confident, and fully prepare for university and a career.
