What our students say

Radu Popp-Vinteller – User Centred Design

"The course was very well put together. It felt intensive without the pressure and I have learnt more about the practicalities of User Centred Design in two days than in a semester during my MA degree. The choice of tutor was excellent too as she was both a practitioner and a good educator."

Ed Williamson Creating a Digital Content Strategy

"I found the course very useful and enjoyable. Clear presentation and an informed and engaging trainer."

Martin Alton – Life Drawing

"This is more than an evening class – the quality of teaching is degree standard and is always fun. The course has exceeded all my expectations."
