When I graduate I am confident that I will be able to put both the knowledge acquired on my degree and the experience gained from my placement into practice.

“When I was studying computing at college I heard a lot of positive things about Edge Hill University from family members who had graduated from here so it was the obvious choice for me.

During my first year I studied a range of modules that are undertaken by all of the computing students then decided to focus on the BSc (Hons) in Web Design and Development as my specialised degree subject.

The course has been great and really appeals to my interests, while also allowing me to be creative and present my work in a style that I am comfortable with.

As part of my studies I am currently on a sandwich placement at 3d Marketing Group, which I found through attending a careers day at Edge Hill. My role here is to design and maintain websites as well as work on a variety of graphic design projects.

I would definitely recommend taking the opportunity to go on a placement as it allows you to put what you have learnt into practice on a daily basis.  I have found the whole experience to be invaluable, but have particularly enjoyed being able to work directly with people in the industry. I am sure this will be of benefit to my studies when I return to university.

When I graduate I am confident that I will be able to put both the knowledge acquired on my degree and the experience gained from my placement into practice. I feel that I will have been given the ideal platform from which to progress into a career of my choice.”
