BA (Hons) Audio Production and Music student
“The state-of-the-art facilities in the Tech Park are all up to industry standards and really are second to none. The fact that all the courses are based within the same building means it’s really easy to collaborate with students from across the Creative Industries. Because of this, I have had the opportunity to work as a boom operator on a couple of film projects that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to. All my lecturers are very kind and are always there to answer any questions I might have or help me out when I need it. I feel that, as a student, my voice is heard and that staff are always willing to listen. I really love the fact that Chichester is a smaller university – seeing people that I know around the campus, being able to give them a wave, has really made me feel at home here.”
