"I previously worked in the automotive industry, but was always very creative and was considering a career change, potentially working in marketing roles with digital technologies. I've had a really good experience at the UCSD; the facilities and resources are excellent, and the support of the tutors is invaluable. I've been able to work on live projects set by employers, such as Living Coasts, which has been incredibly beneficial. I've been able to see the business and commercial aspect of work, and it's been a chance to apply my knowledge and develop my vocational skills. When I complete my Foundation Degree I intend to enter employment for 2 to 3 years, working in web or graphic design, before then completing a top-up year and returning to industry."Ben Young
