The Graphic Design course is a fantastic resource for anyone who has an interest in forging a career in visual communication, or simply has a casual interest in the subject. The best part is, you can do this course at your own pace - There’s no deadlines and no need to stop full time work.

I really loved the course and I am so pleased I found The Graphic Design School. I had wanted to do a Graphic Design course for a long time but couldn't take time off to physically attend classes, so the online option was perfect for me.

Hi, I'm Robbie and as much as I'd like to tell you how much I Iove coffee stained pants, sadly I don't. I like Great Danes, fresh new shoes and I also love everything about design. The great thing about TGDS and their online course is that you can take it anywhere with you and it fits in nicely with the rest of life.

Even though I studied visual arts, photography and graphic design while at school, once I entered the workforce, I unfortunately fell off the creative wagon. After nearly 10 years of doing a variety of admin work, I decided it was time to do something that I love, so I enrolled at The Graphic Design School. It was the best decision I've ever made!

The Graphic Design Schools Certificate in Design stretched my creativity and challenged me (in a nice way). As a previously self-taught computer-bound designer, I certainly made friends with my pencils and sketching pad. Any folks wanting to expand their learning in a practical and creative way then this is the course for you (oh go on then...).
