As I was not sure exactly which direction I wanted to go in, this was perfect for me. I was impressed by the website and student magazines on the Creative Design School International website and reading about other students experiences made me really keen to get started. I started with the Graphic Design for Beginners course and have now completed Level 2 and studying Visual Communcation Specialist Level.

Working with my course tutor has been great, I am looking forward to moving onto the intermediate and advanced courses. What I like about CDS and this method of learning is that I can pick it up whenever and wherever I want and fit it into my family/work life. But also I have direct real contact with a tutor via face to face Skype tutorial sessions. Knowing there is a real dedicated team behind you, who are there to help you rather than a site with a bunch of tutorials for you to download and that’s it is brilliant and is what attracted me to the course.
Have a look at our Students page and read some of the journies a selection of our student have taken with their course choices and career moves etc. We have also featured some of our former students to see how they are getting on after finishing their courses.
