Graduate Experiences

It has 100% helped me be prepared for future employment. I feel I have the necessary knowledge to apply to a real life job and career.

The advice I would give any student of the academy is; Yes it is hard but it is worth it! When you are feeling demotivated, just attempt to commit to half an hour, the creative juices will soon start flowing!

I absolutely loved doing the assignments! As sad as it may sound, I loved having each assignment where only your imagination is the limit and there were no creative restrictions. Knowing that I could be creative allowed me to push myself more in the assignments to really produce something that was original.”
