What our students say...

Shannon ITBDublin

"The combination of creative and computer skills and the wide array of subjects is what drew me to the course. It’s a brilliant course for anyone interested in design, video, animation, photography, audio and website building. The small class size means you get to know the lecturers well; they are understanding and very helpful. For me it’s sad that it has come to an end, but I have made friends and developed skills that will continue to grow stronger throughout my life."
