What Students Say:

Dominic-Oakes“I decided to choose Textiles as one of my Art A Level options because I’m passionate about fashion and being on this course is perfect because of the freedom you’re given to design just about anything. I like the friendly atmosphere here and the tutors – who go out of their way to help with coursework. I came here because of the College’s reputation and would definitely recommend it – the OSFC experience is too good to miss!” – Dominic Oakes
