I went to (a university) before the Academy. Things are different here. There is more emphasis on visual thinking and understanding design. I now have more understanding of how to meet clients’ needs and have become a more ambitious person.
Scott McAllester, B.A. (Graphic Design)

I’ve benefited from the small class sizes and the good student-tutor contact. My design thinking has matured and I’ve gained knowledge not only from my tutors but also from other students. Working with great people with similar ambitions has been invaluable.
Rachel Stevens, B.A. (Graphic Design)

More Testimonials:

I have just landed a job as digital artist with Animal Logic at Fox Studios; a film visual effects company whose work includes "The Matrix", "Mission Impossible" and "The Moulin Rouge" (and now “Happy Feet” which won an OSCAR).
I am overjoyed that the effort of study and interview trials has paid off and I now have what is for me the "dream job".
Michael Halford, BA (Multimedia)

I attended a university before the Academy. I now know that I only had a basic understanding of design. Relearning has been challenging and rewarding, and enjoyable.
