For me, coming to Petroc allowed to stay within the local area of North Devon whilst studying at a place that I had previously studied at and had been encouraged by supportive staff to carry on my educational journey.

I chose the FDA Music Technology & Production course due to the highly enjoyable time I had spent on the BTEC Music Technology course at Petroc and found myself growing my love of music and music technology. I think part of this choice was also down to the high level of inclusion and support I had from music lecturers at the Factory.

I personally enjoyed the “hands-on” practical feel that Petroc offered through the degree, I expected a world of exams but was surprised with the support I received throughout.

After completing my FDA Music Technology at Petroc, I then moved onto do a third year to gain a BA (Hons) in Music Technology at dBs Bristol University, and now have completed a full circle and have come back to Petroc to study my Certificate in Education and volunteer to help teach music students like I once was.
