Testimonials from BSix Media Alumni

Daniel Rocobado Rocobado
Daniel initially came to BSix to study A Levels but was advised to undertake the recently created Creative Media Diploma. On the course he discovered a love of production and produced some excellent documentaries, short films and commercials. The hard work paid off when it was time to apply to university where he secured a place at the world-renowned Bournemouth Film School with alumni such as Edgar Wright and Simon Beaufoy.

Simon Kag
Simon started the media course barely achieving passes but through talent, hard work and dedication he left the course with a D* DD.

Tsitsi Mujuru
After a rocky start Tsitsi, like Simon, gradually improved to the point where she achieved a D*D*D by the end of the course. This provided her with enough UCAS points to enter her top choice University.
