Student Reviews:

Images of The Interactive Design Institute (IDI)“Studying with IDI was great for me because it meant that I didn’t have to stop working. I could carry on working at the same time and study in the evenings.”
- Fiona, BA (Hons) Graphic Design Graduate

"The tutors at IDI are fantastic – any questions I had were answered fully, clearly and best of all, quickly. I never felt like I couldn't check in with them about any worries I was having, and keeping in contact on a regular basis means that you create a real working bond, one I found even more successful than when at university previously.
- Abi, BA (Hons) Photography Graduate

“I chose to study for an MA more for a need for intellectual enquiry and stimulation and practice-based experimentation, than for the prospect of suitable employment.

At nearly 64 years of age my chances of employment are slim in an industry which is almost as competitive as that of the theatre! However, I now see myself more of a visual artist rather than the traditional model of a ‘jobbing’ photographer."

- Julius, MA Photography (Visual Communication) Graduate
