How much is the course?

All information on payments and payment plans can be found on the enrolments page of this site.

How does e-learning vary from a real classroom?

A great question without a single answer. Each student discovers for his or herself the conveniences of e–learning from home in their own way.

Besides passing on the costs that we save on infrastructure and rent, the most reported convenience for students is not needing to travel to a classroom, costly parking and the time involved for such an exercise.

The online support forum is jam packed with questions and answers from past students. Students use this as a quick reference too. Students can also post their own question to the forum and our tutors will reply quickly.

But do all of the conveniences really outweigh being in an interactive classroom environment … We think so! The Graphic Design School has dedicated thousands of hours to fine tuning our online graphic design courses, so that our students can benefit as much if not more from an e–learning experience with us than a real-life classroom environment.

We have many experiences of both tutors and students of other colleges reporting how long it takes a tutor to ‘get around’ to giving one individual the attention needed. In a classroom of 30-50 students, its understandable that one teacher cannot satisfy everybody’s demands. In an e-learning environment however, your instructional videos and course materials can be re-watched and re-read as many times as you like in case you feel you have missed anything first time around.

Do I need a portfolio or experience?

There are a few requirements for enrolment. You must:

  • Possess the drive and motivation needed to undertake e-learning.
  • Be 18 or over. If you are under 18 and wish to study, please ask a parent or guardian to contact the school via email or phone and we can discuss your particular case to see whether you would be eligible to study with us.
  • Have a love of design… Of course.
What equipment do I need?

As you will be studying from home, there will be a certain amount of equipment that you will need to undertake the course successfully.

You will need access to a computer.

PC or Mac is fine; the course runs on any operating system. The Schoolyard itself functions like any other internet site; no special requirements are needed to run the Schoolyard. You will be using graphics software throughout the course. The software does require a minimum amount of system requirements to run fast and efficiently.
