Student Spotlight

Miles Stewart, Media Production Foundation Degree

I went to a local sixth-form college and was keen to stay in Somerset after a year out. UCS offers the convenience of staying local with the chance to study at degree level. I intend to complete my BA (Hons) with a final year at Plymouth. Our lecturers are totally dedicated. They have a mix of skills and are always ready to support us. The course fires my creativity and gives me lots of room to express myself.
