The course and lecturer was great. When I didn’t understand something I could always ask without feeling bad. The way in which the course was conducted was great. My overall experience was good and I will definitely come back.

Lovely experience, was patiently and thoroughly taught the essentials of After Effects. The course schedule worked perfectly with my work schedule. Everything was easy to understand and helping assistance was always available.

I have done short courses at a different institution before and I must say that my experience at Friends of Design was infinitely better. The lecturer was great, very informative and always willing to help. Even though I had a very good understanding and a lot of experience in After Effects before the course I found that I learnt a lot regardless and got and even better understanding of the program which is what I wanted to achieve. I actually wish the course had been a week or two longer just to gain more knowledge but I think I’ll have to come back to Friends of Design for a different course.
