Student Review:Picture of Online Fine Arts & Design Courses
"I chose to study with IDI because of the flexibility - studying online meant that I could work anytime, anywhere and wasn't restricted to the timetable of a traditional university.

This meant I could move to Tokyo in my 2nd year which helped me to find new ideas and inspiration. It was also cheaper than traditional universities, especially now that the fees have gone up."
