What the students' say…

The digital design course helped me get on my way to a new start in graphic and web design. It gave me all the knowledge and confidence I needed to go get the job I wanted. The tutors were up-to-date with all the latest design ideas and made the course fun to do. I am now freelancing for a Brighton based design company, who are so impressed with my work they have offered me a full time 'Graphic Designer' position in their company. Thanks Hove College!
