What our students think

I’m now a Games Designer at Mangahigh, where I design and make maths games. With over a million users across the world there is a massive audience for any of the games I design. These games will help make maths more exciting and engaging and hopefully lead to more people enjoying maths!

I now work for The Workspace as an Expansion Manager, and I also have my own online lingerie and swimwear label which I launched in 2014.

WSA taught me a great deal about how to think logically and solve problems with creative solutions, and to always push the boundaries of what you might be capable of in a commercial environment. It also taught me not to be afraid of making mistakes, at any stage of your career. If there’s no element of risk in your creative work, then chances are it’s been done before.

Being at WSA gave me the time to really figure out what direction I wanted to go in. Outside of my studies, I took part in the D&AD New Blood competition, which I won, and this really boosted my chances of getting a creative role after graduation. Ever since I started studying in the creative field during my undergraduate degree, I was told how D&AD was such a big deal, so to win the award myself has absolutely blown my mind.

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.
