IDI Study

Where: Interactive Design Institute

What: BA (Hons) Illustration (University of Hertfordshire degree)

by Ashley - May 2014

I have been studying with IDI for the past year and have found the course to be fun, varied and well structured. I chose to complete my Illustration degree via distance learning as I wanted to travel and the course allowed me to do this. It is not without it's struggles though, although I am a part time student it is important not to underestimate the time allowance needed to complete your studies. It is a challenge! Most importantly the course has allowed me to move forward with my life and aspirations, without faulting in my studies. Not having a face to face tutor presence in the classroom takes some adjustment, but the tutors will engage with you as much as you require, and the forums are full of fellow peers discussing work and providing feedback. All in all, if you need flexibility with your studies this is the ideal route.
