Student's Stories

Rachel Clarke: I received everything I needed to become a Jewellery Designer. The ICI Jewellery Design course provided me with an impressive course which not only taught me how to design and make jewellery but also how to sell my creations.

Michael Mittiga: I wasn't able to leave my full time job to study so distance learning suited me best. I was able to set my own timetable and submit assessments around my own commitments. Had it not been for the flexible nature of the course I would not have been able to complete my studies! 

Susan Evans: I embarked on this journey a little over 24 weeks ago. As I progressed through every module my confidence grew and I learnt skills which have produced some breath taking photos. I never knew I would enjoy assignments so much.

John Chan: I strongly recommend the business management course to everyone interested in running a successful business! I can't tell you how happy I am with the course and what it has enabled me to do in my business. It's just amazing.

Tracy Batram: I found the floristry course very informative and gained proper knowledge on the floristry industry in all aspects. The tutors were great and very helpful with any questions I asked. I would recommend this course to anyone who loves flower arranging or has a desire for a new career in this industry. A very detailed, fun and informative course.
