Winchester was a great place to study; the School of Art was ideal as a campus, being close enough to London for all the galleries, events, and private views, but also situated within relaxed, quiet surroundings, which I found perfect for creativity

The course offers a multitude of opportunities throughout the year, both on and off campus. I’ve had the opportunity to work with local fashion companies Emma Pake and Deborah Campbell Atelier through live briefs, overall improving my confidence and knowledge through critical feedback and industry insights.

What I love about my course is that I can come in every morning, sit down at my desk, and start working, making, developing and iterating all day in comfort and without stress.

I liked the feel of Winchester School of Art from the very beginning. It has a great atmosphere and I always found it to be very friendly. I had such a great time there. I loved my degree and made some great friends. The textile design course was fascinating, and we learned so much from our tutors, technical staff and visiting lecturers.

There are so many opportunities for so many different things, that you really can’t be lost for something to do. Whether it is learning a new skill in a workshop, working within the university, an internship, or just developing your own practice.
