Sharon's story

Sharon is among hundreds of UAL students realising their creative potential thanks to funding.

Choosing to study the MA Visual Arts: Fine Art Digital course was a natural step for Sharon, but receiving a UAL Vice-Chancellor's Postgraduate Scholarship was the real key to her further education at UAL, enabling her to continue her studies and practice as an artist. “I wouldn’t be studying at UAL without it. It made me realise that all things are possible.”

“The course, the course leader, the technicians I met and the artists I know that have studied at Camberwell College of Arts – combined with my previous experience as a former BA Graphic Design student – these are the reasons I chose UAL,” said Sharon. “It was a no brainer!”

Sharon’s course, unlike other courses, has an online study option, which means that students can study from anywhere in the world. “Once a year, we get to meet on a 10-day residential; that, for me, has been one of the many positive highlights of the course.”

Following her MA, Sharon plans to continue her practice as an artist and designer whilst remaining involved in education. “I would love to use both my practice and experience to develop closer transitional links between secondary, further and higher education, and the industry.”
