"The great thing about the course is it had a good mix of theory and practical"

"I enjoy the lighting practicals on the course as I learn the most from being hands-on. The highlights for me have been the practical sessions and working in the engineering workshops where I can build and solder different circuits and designs. Working with equipment such as lighting desks is especially good. The University offers site trips, recommends recruitment days and also has visitors from companies so we can get an insight into the industry.”
