Hear straight from our graduates.
I have friends that had previously gone to Shillington, and they always sung its praises. I was sold pretty quickly when I knew that I could smash out the course in only 3 months!
Junior Graphic Designer, Just Media Design
What were you up to before Shillington?
Before Shillington I had a brief stint in studying business when I’d graduated from High School because I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I quickly found out that I wasn’t passionate about it and instead got a full time job in Administration at a Primary School until I could figure out what exactly I was passionate about.
Why did you decided to study design?
After working in Administration for a few years, I was growing restless and finding myself creatively frustrated. I’d always been a creative person but only dabbled in a few creative outlets on the side of work. I started to play around with the Adobe Suite in my free time and before I knew it, I was super intrigued by design and wanted to know more about how I could get better and turn it into a career.

Which video on your YouTube channel should we watch to best capture your experience at Shillington?
This one! I discuss the whole process of putting my Portfolio together in the last two weeks of College—intense! I go pretty in detail about what I did in my final weeks, how I overhauled a couple of my original designs to better fit briefs from clients, how I set up my online portfolio, how my lecturers prepped me for real-life interviews, and how the graduation showcase works. Super helpful info if you’re considering studying!
