I have been studying with OCAD for sometime now, I did my IGCSE Art & Design with them and now I am doing a Foundation Diploma. I love studying with them at my own pace with the help and support of the tutors. They are all really nice and really supportive. This has been a great experience and is enabling me to gain qualifications for my future. From Bethany.

Here is a review from Nikita Russi. A Distinction Student Nikita will be attending the University of the Arts London starting next September. She will be studying Time Based Media OCAD helped me a great deal. After I finally comitted to my real passion, OCAD made it possible for me to follow the path to go to an art school. The teachers, well qualified, learned me and showed me how to make art by researching and focussing on the right subject. My tutor, Anne, took a lot of time with me by skyping and commenting to show me how to make a project and how to use my ideas and make art out of it. She really understood how my mind worked and helped me to transfer those ideas into real art pieces. I was able therefore to explore new paths and find new ways to express myself, videos in my case. As well, and i think this is very important, she helped me a lot to make a portfolio and how to apply to schools. I think OCAD made it possible for me to enter in an art school and I am very happy and grateful for it. I hope that people who try to find their way into arts will try it through the online course as well, they'll be surprised of the result can be by skyping and listening to tutors. I recommend it especially to people who are working independentely and/or are studying or working beside but want to do the foundation course. It is hard work but worth it completely.

OCAD has allowed me to independently study as a mature student around a busy working schedule. It's been the perfect setup for me, with quick, knowledgable and helpful responses to my work from tutors, allowing me to achieve a distinction in my foundation course and attend the university of my choice. Without this convenient and accessible online experience I would never have been able to start this new chapter. I highly recommend OCAD for a detailed, user-friendly and accommodating course for those wanting to study from home- Meg Drew

Before starting my Foundation in Art&Design - I hadn't been in education for approximately 4 years, I was doing a job that I liked but never loved and my passion was in the creative industries. Upon finding this opportunity, it really helped me to get back on my feet with it all again and explore my creative thinking - my tutors were always on hand to help me progress through each stage and believed in me to have the potential to complete work to the best off my ability. I am now aiming to go to Brighton University, (something I thought I would never say) to complete a BA (Hons) in Moving Image. Very chuffed!! I would definitely recommend anyone looking to do what they love and have the belief and passion that you can do it with OCAD whilst it being completely tailored to your convenience! GREAT SERVICE!! Thanks guys! :) x

Here is a review from our Star Student this year Declan Goodby
Since I left college, I've always known I'd go back and do something that I'd enjoy, when I realised what that was. I found this course for a Foundation diploma in Art and Design and since joining I've never regretted my decision.
Doing this course online was perfect for me as I had a full time job that took a good 40-50 hours a week and I was still able to do the work and get incredible feedback to make the work a little bit better each time. Since doing this course I feel that my knowledge and understanding of art and design has improved massively, I have produced and shown several portfolios of work to universities, and even obtained an UNCONDITIONAL OFFER from my chosen uni because of the help and guidance from this course, overall I'm extremely satisfied and enjoyed my time with OCAD even through the hard parts. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wanting to further there education in art and design as if does include every aspect from the start. All the best Declan Goodby

I'm not going to write about the course because I'll know how well it and I got on in the upcoming weeks.
However the support that I received was all I could have hoped for. Honestly since the beginning of my education I've had an incredibly love-hate relationship with all my previous art teachers. However maybe it's because these tutors trusted me to challenge myself or simply believed that enforcing their artistic views down your throat doesn't amount to any good, in fact for me that teaching method has only fostered anger. These tutors are open minded and more than willing to encourage you to follow a path they themselves did not, without belittling or antagonizing you. I was allowed to grow naturally, the occasional prod to get me moving in the right direction but hey, that's what tutors are for.
Praise is best received from the people you respect, so thank you. For everything.

The course is very professional, And it makes every student develop his or her skills step by step, makes us experiment with different materials and medium, and also teaches perfection in whatever we do. Very Satisfied !

Foundation diploma was perfect for getting back into art after a brief hiatus. The online nature of the course is ideal for mature students and those with work and family commitments as you can work the hours that work best for you. Tutors are on hand and always very swift to get back to you with help and advice. This proved to be the perfect entryway to university for me and tutor Anne was incredibly helpful every step of the way, both with the foundation course and university applications. Would definitely recommend!

Tutor Heidi Babb takes over 2 months on average to grade my son's work. After much chasing she is extremely rude in her replies saying that my son is not as valuable as her iGCSE students (he is a KS3 student). My son submits work 6 - 8 weekly and today we have received an extremely rude message from Ms Babb demanding to know where his work is after a month. I have had enough of the despicable way this woman treats us, her rude and dismissive attitude and the excuses she gives for such appalling behaviour. This is the final straw. Avoid this company unless you like being treated with utter contempt.
