Can you tell us about your exchange to Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT)?
“I went on exchange for five months, which was amazing! The course was set out differently and it was interesting to get a different perspective on my work. The opportunities to travel and explore were amazing, it was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity.
“I’d encourage other students to go on exchange as you get to meet so many great people from all over the world, making so many contacts. It also pushes you out of your comfort zone to experience new things. Even though I was in Australia, the culture and people were so different and I've made some amazing friends for life.”
Has the course included any guest speakers?
“Yes we have had guest lectures from so many people. Each photographer or speaker offered a different insight into their lives which has helped me to see what different photography jobs are like.”
How do you find the course staff?
“Everyone is so friendly and helpful, it’s brilliant. All the course staff are interested in your learning and want you to do your best.”
How do you find the facilities?

What do you enjoy most about studying and living in Nottingham?
“Despite Nottingham not being a huge city, there’s always something to do and I always find myself busy. The art scene is great with galleries and pop ups everywhere!”
Where do you hope to be in five years’ time?
“I hope to be working in a creative industry that uses my photography skills, as well as other art practices. I like variety, so a job that gives me that would be great. I’d also love if my job involved people, I like talking to everyone.”
