Kimberley Sweeney

Fashion Design degree at the University of Central Lancashire.


  1. I studied the Artand Design courses from Level 1 to Level 3. I also studied GCSE English and maths.

  2. I would like to be working in the fashion industry and eventually open my own business or brand.

  3. Being able to be myself. I was bullied when I was young and was taken out of school because of it, so to be able to be comfortable being myself at College was a revelation.

  4. Productive. Motivating. Fun. I have learnt so much and not only that but I felt motivated to learn and I enjoyed every second of it.

Kimberley said:

After a bad experience at school, I had a lot of nerves and was very anxious, so joining College was a very big step for me. Once I got to College, I found that the atmosphere, the other students in my class and especially the staff were completely different to school.

It is a much more grown up and supportive environment and those on your course share your passion, so you can bounce ideas off each other. Coming to College really did change me as a person and without it I doubt I’d be really following my passion or going to university.
