“I’m so excited. It’s an honour to be representing my college and the UK in a subject I’m passionate about. Whatever the outcome, I’m thrilled and I hope I can do everyone proud. Looking back over the last year, I can’t quite believe it as it’s been so amazing. It felt like a risk to go back into education as a mature student, but my lecturers have been so encouraging and supportive. Without them I wouldn’t have got this far.”

Sarah Gotheridge

“From creative design through to manufacture, Sarah astonished both teaching staff and the judges of the SDC competition by her concepts, design ability, eye for colour and quality of sketchbooks and finished pieces.She has worked incredibly hard, achieved an exceptional body of work and served as an outstanding ambassador, both for the course and for the College. We are all excited to see how far she gets, although even just to experience showcasing her work on an international stage will be thrilling!”

Nottingham College Art & Design BA (Hons) Course Leader, Liz Libor
