Value of the Arts and Humanities

Our students know that ‘success’ is not a one-size-fits-all definition. Nor is studying all about the destination. Rather, the skills you gain, the people you meet, and the enjoyment you take are just as important.

From trusting their instinct, to not believing the stereotypes, our students show that ‘success’ is for them to decide.

"The course taught me to understand that things aren’t all black and white. Oh, and how to edit myself. I’ve never had feedback like you get at university since graduating!"
