As students go, they don’t come more model than Jack Ryan-Philips.
Not only did Jack achieve a First Class Honors Degree in Creative Digital Media, but he also picked up two academic scholarships along the way.
Jack joined the University three years ago and graduated in November 2011.
“I did a National Diploma in Multimedia at Hereford College of Arts” said the 22-year-old. “The course gave me a taste for many aspects of digital media, from title sequences to website design. The eclectic mix stimulated my ideas and creativity in new and exciting ways.”
Jack, who lives in Hereford, took a year off after college and undertook two Open University short courses, in environmental science and humanities.
“I wanted to be absolutely sure about what I wanted to do and, although I enjoyed these courses, taking them cemented my wish to go to university and study Creative Digital Media,” he said.
Jack said that he chose the University of Worcester because of its friendly and green campus and the reputation of its courses.
“I came to visit and really liked the fact that the University had all the latest equipment and really seemed to have its finger on the pulse” he said.
Jack added: “I really enjoyed some of the 'live brief' projects that we had the opportunity to undertake. The Tapestry Room project with the National Trust was particularly exciting as it allowed me to combine my personal interest in history and heritage with my fascination for typography and motion.”
Since completing his degree Jack has embarked on an internship with Archetype Design and is also doing freelance work; he's currently working on a microsite for a London publisher. He is also taking courses in drawing and Latin and hoping to go on to study for a Masters degree in the future.
