Scott Slater

Studied: BA (Hons) Graphic Communication

Now: 6-month contract with META

Open, friendly and inspiring

What made you decide to study at University Centre Blackburn College?

I decided to study here because it was the closest one to where I lived and I've come to college here in 2004 to do something else so it just made sense to come here.


What did you like best about University Centre Blackburn College?

I liked the one-to-one learning and the small group learning. I liked the  floor I learned graphic design in. I think it's nice up on the top floor because it's designed for graphic designers especially with windows because starring out of the windows all day is inspiring. 


What did you like best about your course?

What I enjoyed about the course was learning about web design and the modules. The tutors were nice to get to know and all the other people that were learning with me.


What did you think about the campus - the atmosphere, the facilities and how safe it was?

What I like most about the campus was the chips and gravy from the canteen because it reminded me of being back at school. In the outside environment you can go and sit on the grass when it's sunny. You can also go for a stroll through the Leisure Centre and go for a swim. 

Have you secured employment following completion of your course?

Whilst studying I got offered a 6-month contract with a META owned company Unit 2. They asked us to set up our own company to be partners of META.
