I love my course
4 5
by Dina - May 2015

It was the first time in my life that I signed up for an online course. I was very nervous about how it would go but the study guide detailed all the study procedures very clearly. The student portal was very easy to use. Additional supporting material that was available on the portal was very helpful for my course work. The tutor uploaded the feedback on the portal timely and replied to my emails quickly. Student portal was very user friendly. Overall I loved my course.

Pleasant experience for me
5 5
by Brenda - March 2015

Completing Fashion Design Course through OHSC was a pleasant experience for me. My tutor was very helpful and she always got back to me very quickly whenever I needed help. Before enrolling on this course I always thought Fashion designing is all about sewing but I learnt elements and principles of designing and while working on my last module I was able to design an outfit fulfilling all the design requirements.
