I chose to do graphic design because during industry week this course stood out to me and I really enjoyed the level 3 course so I felt it was a natural progression.
My tutor was really accommodating throughout my course and this made a difference when I moved from school to college as all the staff were friendly and made the transition easier.
I'm currently in full-time work while doing freelance outside but I'm looking to go to University to study at a higher level soon. I would recommend GC to other aspiring graphic design students and I even recommended it to my younger brother who is starting soon.
I think a lot of people think that going away to study at University is the only option, but it's better to stay where you know and study while you're at home in a place you know
