Allisson studied the Access to Higher Education Diploma in Creative Industries (Games and Media Production) at Middlesbrough College and then progressed to the Higher National Certificate in Creative Media Production at the College’s University Centre.
Allisson said: “I decided to come to Middlesbrough College to study for the Access to HE Diploma as I wanted to pursue a career in the digital industry, and the College has a really good reputation for games design and digital courses.
“Studying the Access to HE Diploma has helped me with my future options and opened the door to University study. The teaching on the course was brilliant and the tutors were on hand to answer any questions I had.
“I enjoy gaming in my spare time, and I love learning about what’s involved in creating games so the Games and Media Production course was an obvious choice for me. I’m hoping to progress in the industry and thanks to the Access course at Middlesbrough College and the skills I’ve developed, I’m one step closer to working in the sector.
“I would recommend studying at Middlesbrough College. I’ve gained knowledge of the industry, confidence and independence and I’ve also made lots of new friends too!
“My plan is to progress and complete my BA (Hons) Games Design degree and then to continue pursuing a career in games development.”
