What are the benefits of taking the Shillington course online?

The Shillington online graphic design course isn’t just an online course—it’s the Shillington course online. That means we do things a little differently:

No experience required. Even if you’ve never opened the Adobe programs, then you’ve got nothing to worry about—our teachers will guide you every step of the way.

Accountability. Deadlines, homework, participation and attendance are down to you. Just like they would be in the real world.

Community. Research, work and socialise with fellow students from around the world, bringing in different, fresh perspectives and cultures.

Real world application. The online graphic design course operates as a remote design studio with real time briefs and deadlines, preparing you to go out and work as a designer anywhere in the world.

I really like how even though the course is online, it really seems like we are physically in a real classroom. The teachers are awesome and 3 hours pass by in a minute.
