A celebration of artistic talent took place at the Apex with an awards evening and signature project display from graduates at the University of Suffolk at West Suffolk College.
They had all graduated from the BA (Hons) Applied Interior Design and BA (Hons) Graphics and Communication Design. Sue Winseltt, lecturer in Art and Design said: “The standard of this year’s students was incredibly high with above national benchmark top grades; the external examiners commended this and said their work was on a par with London degree courses”.
