Art and Design student Bethan Mason is proof that you really can #DoMore at college after she was given the chance to work in Italy on placement.
The 18-year-old said: “I loved the Florence trip and it was one of the best experiences that I could ever do.
I made lots of new friends, got to learn new skills and become more independent, and the bonus was that it was all in Italy! Exploring Italy was the main highlight of the trip and being surrounded by my new-found friends was even better.
“My work placement was good, and I learnt lots of great new skills such as how to print t-shirts and learnt more of the Italian language naturally.
“I would recommend the opportunity 110% because it is not something that many people get the chance to do. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, but it was for the better.”
