Art, Design & Digital Technology
Ben would like to study arts and visual design at NMIT fulltime in the future, so when he heard about the new Art, Design & Digital Technology Trades programme he thought why not give it a go. Ben could see that this would be a great opportunity to have a look at the NMIT campus and develop skills that he can use to go into future study. Long term, his dream career would be working in Japan as an illustrator and animator.
The Trades course has definitely lived up to his expectations. “It’s actually surpassed my expectations - I love it here. The first day that I saw the facilities I was amazed. It’s a big campus but easy to find your way around. We have a small class and so we get lots of one-to-one support and attention from our tutors.”
The style of learning has been a highlight for Ben. “The tutors have a good sense of humour and are very patient. At school everyone in the class has to do the same thing, but here we get to choose our own project and choose our own way of learning. We get to set the pace and the tutors are there to guide us.”
Ben would definitely recommend this Trades programme to others. In fact he says “You’ll regret it if you don’t give it a go!”
