Graduates 2024: Greta Carroll: Digital Music and Sound Arts

“I have loved my tutors and the technicians and how inspiring they are. I have learnt so much and now I know the ins and outs of both the history of sound; I’ve enjoyed learning to record the sound of electricity and having a deep knowledge of artists and what they do. I’m dyslexic and had very low confidence in myself all my life. I feel the course has really freed me up and I feel I can hold my own now in a conversation in sound and electronic music.”

Graduates 2024: Coral Monaghan: Illustration

“I’m from London, and living in a smaller city where I can get everywhere by foot is great. It means I get out and about more, it feels like it opens up more possibilities. I think I’ll forever associate Brighton with spending long days in the university studio, getting lost in work… I’ll miss that student-studio atmosphere. I like the hustle and bustle of it; the productivity of it.”
