What our students say

“I loved every single day of this journey: especially the meetings, the fantastic instructors, the interaction with my wonderful classmates, the efficiency of the staff, and the pace of work. Thanks for everything you have done for us!“

Elena Brial

“I really appreciated the behaviour and the availability of the teachers Luke and Gabriel. I really enjoyed the presence of special guests in the Friday recap.“

Davide Ballasina

“Overall, I really enjoyed the course and found it was at the right level to challenge and develop my skills without being too overwhelming. I also found the dailies were very useful and kept the tempo of work high as you had near constant feedback.“

Elea Sainsbury

“Being able to see how my classmates work and having a teacher to whom I can ask questions or ask for advice, were very valuable and motivating things.“

Daniel Dominguez

“The feedback from lecturers was really good. Tutorials for first two modules were really good too. Learning to use ShotGrid is great too as it is used in the industry, but not at universities.“

Jiri Novy

“I thought the constructive criticism we got was great. It was always very helpful, and never mean-spirited.“
