​I want to become a set designer

After leaving college with a Level 3 National Diploma in Art and Design, I am currently halfway through my second year at university, studying Applied Arts.

But I have been questioning myself whether this is the right career path for me, and I feel that i need a fresh new start. I am an extremely hands-on person, and enjoy designing, making and being creative.

I also have a great passion for theatre as I’ve recently volunteered my free time at a local school to help design the set, makes props and create the scenery ready for their end of year production; and I was overwhelmed with the whole experience.

Ever since that I have set my heart into having a career similar to this, I know its the right path for me, I would appreciate it if you could help me/advise me on the next steps to take.
