“I chose to study at FVC as I had been attending an evening course there and liked this course, so decided to continue my studies there.

“The facilities are excellent. The lecturers and support staff are very supportive and helpful. 

“My experience of studying at the College has benefited me by allowing me to grow in confidence as an artist. FVC gave me a solid grounding in how to work in a self-directed way which will help with any future endeavors.

“I would recommend the College and the course to others as the Creative Industries Department of FVC has great facilities and equipment and no idea is too much for the lecturers and support staff. The lecturers also have a wide degree of experience and expertise, which they are more than happy to pass on.

“Other facilities include the library, restaurant, gym and student support, all of which are excellent and again all the staff very friendly and helpful.

“The best bit for me has been learning to grow and believe in myself as an artist.”

Summing up her experience at Forth Valley college in three words Annette, said: “Creative, supportive, and enjoyable.”
