“Many people are questioning the trajectory of their lives post Covid, and I would recommend to anyone who feels that they have stones left unturned, that they should consider post graduate study as a way to make room for themselves to turn those stones, explore what is underneath and open up the possibilities of a more interesting and fulfilling future.”

“What struck me about the UoB course, was the faculty. Many of them had a direct influence on me during my undergraduate degree.

“The opportunities for experimentation and the freedom to explore different mediums and techniques have been highlights of the course for me.” Read More
