Haaris, Creative & Digital

It’s been great studying at the UTC. I’ve loved taking the technical qualifications with academic ones. My favourite assignments have involved a brief set by employers, for example, creating a short film and learning editing skills.

Haaris Malik is looking forward to the next chapter of his life as he prepares to move to London to start university.

The 18-year-old has just completed a technical qualification in creative and digital at UTC Sheffield City Centre campus, on Matilda Street, achieving a double distinction grade.

Haaris also studied A Level photography, gaining a grade B. Now he is going onto study a Degree in Digital Design at Brunel University London.

He said: “I am overjoyed at getting the grades I need to go on to university. I’ve chosen that degree because it is one of the few places where you can take a broader approach and study not just one, but a range of topics such as graphic design, video production, photography and more. I enjoy all those subjects and don’t want to specialise in just one.”

Haaris added: “It’s been great studying at the UTC. I’ve loved taking the technical qualifications with academic ones. My favourite assignments have involved a brief set by employers, for example, creating a short film and learning editing skills.”

He continued: “You develop many skills such as how to learn and work independently as well as in a team. I’d definitely recommend the UTC. The portfolio that I built really helped me at my university interview. The panel were impressed with the work that we covered and gave me some great feedback.”
