Sarah Dickson, Diploma in Screen Production Student

I came to an EIT open day and loved the facilities and the programme outline. EIT was incredibly welcoming. Video production is an amazing secret that EIT have. The tutors are the most powerful mentors I could have and the equipment at my fingertips has been outstanding. I loved my two years at EIT.
