Student ecstatic to earn a place at world-leading Art School!
Eastleigh College student, Jonah Alexander, is overwhelmed to have been accepted at the world-famous Slade School of Fine Art at University College London (UCL). Jonah is currently finishing his Level 3 Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Eastleigh College, before moving to London in September.
The Slade School of Fine Art makes a significant contribution to contemporary art, on both a national and international basis. Studying at Slade is an honour for any artist and with so many global links to art institutions and organisations, students can expect to make fantastic achievements.
Jonah was thrilled when he found that he had been offered a place, “I felt so happy, I can’t believe this has happened to me. I’m excited to do more oil painting, especially on a larger scale, and possibly also more film photography and film making”.
With no clear career path in mind yet, Jonah is keen to experience as many art forms as possible and keep an open mind about his future.

Eastleigh College opens a rapid-turnaround onsite Covid-19 testing centre
Eastleigh College is offering rapid-turnaround lateral flow tests for learners and staff to help in the fight against Covid-19. Lateral flow tests can produce quick results and can be used to identify Covid-19 infection in those without symptoms (asymptomatic). It is hoped that running these tests across the college will result in faster detection of cases for learners and staff without symptoms, and therefore achieve a more effective prevention of infection.

We understand how disappointing and concerning this news is and the College seeks to reassure all learners, parents, guardians and employers that the College will seek to ensure no learner is disadvantaged and that we will work to provide as much information and guidance as possible as soon as information is available to us.
