For many people in art college, us included, it’s very hard to come up with answers to the dreaded question of “What are you going to do after University?”

We’re a group of current third year DJCAD students from a range of disciplines and in an attempt to help students answer this question, we’ve contacted art college graduates to see what their experience was after leaving and any tips they have for us current students.  Over the next month, we’re going to be sharing what they said on Instagram (@djcadpathways) and on this blog.

These people studied everything from Animation to Jewellery to Product Design and now do everything from part-time freelance work  to a Masters degree to Events hosting. We want to be able to show you that it’s okay if you don’t leave and go straight into your dream job, because there are a million and one ways to use your degree for creative good.
