Hassan Ali

  • Studying Post-production & VFX at the University of Salford
  • Level 3 Extended Diploma Media Production

Hassan joined the College with the dream of working in TV or film industry and settled straight into the life of a Creative Media student, producing some excellent work and making lots of friends.

Whilst studying, Hassan impressed his tutors with his dedication and creative spark. Despite suffering from an illness that forced him to have an extended period of time away from college, he came back hungry for success – setting up his own videography business alongside his studies.

Hassan’s tutors were blown away by his resilience, ambition and enthusiasm, describing themselves as “lucky” to support and guide Hassan. He even won the highest student award at the College’s FE Awards.

“Before my diagnosis with a serious illness, I restricted myself to work that didn’t show my full potential. After overcoming my illness, I realised I can’t waste time staying in one lane. So I started my own business with friends whilst studying and did a lot of voluntary work experience.

“My tutors’ support massively motivated me to aim high and I am now studying Post-production & VFX at university.”
