Final year students display their talent across showcases

Southampton Solent University final-year students will be putting their talent on display at a series of stunning showcases this month.

As the 2015/16 academic year draws to a close, the annual degree shows give students the opportunity to celebrate and showcase their work to future employers, the public, as well as their friends and family.

From 10-15 June, students graduating from Solent’s School of Art, Design and Fashion will showcase their work in the University’s spectacular new building, the Spark, on East Park Terrace, and its art and design studios, Below Bar.

Work from a range of courses will be on display, from architectural technology to interior design and fine art to photography.
