“I thought I didn’t have anything left to learn, but boy was I wrong. I have gained massive experience in concept development, visual communication and presenting a fully developed advertisement for a product.”


“I initially signed up for two courses to take advantage of the generous discounts on offer. Firstly, I began with Advanced Graphic Design and never looked back. Managing to complete the course in eight months which involved an in depth study into the application and use of Graphic Design. The course focused on my personal development and each unit ended with a practical assignment, which helped in building up good creative work for my portfolio. I received constant advice and coaching from my personal tutor throughout the course.”
