We caught up with ex-student Tânia Rodrigues and
asked how studying at Edinburgh College has contributed to her success:
“Coming from a computer technology background I had
very little experience in music but knew that I wanted to work as a musician.
Starting on the introductory course at Edinburgh College I eventually
progressed to HNC level. Today I am studying for the BMus at The University of
Edinburgh and I am already working in the music industry. I can confidently say
that this was possible thanks to Edinburgh College. The opportunity to change
career paths through being a mature student was the best I could ever attain.”
