The contents of the course is really interesting. The tutors are very supportive, and the level of communication is impressive.

I probably wouldn't recommend this course as there is little actual tutorials, some the link are just to YouTube videos and not designed as specific tutorials which had I know I would not have joined the course. I would have preferred step by step tutoring, with perhaps more than just names of artists to research would have been helpful, something more specific as there is so much information it can be overwhelming. A data base of perhaps downloadable tutorials on how to do printing, basic photo editing, mind maps and other techniques would have been really helpful. I relied on internet searches and never really know if I'm finding the right information. You are essentially paying for tutor support, which they are good and is the redeeming factor. I struggled with being left to my own devices and would have prefered smaller breakdown of submitting work, perhpas each unit broken into smaller pieces. That being said, my circumstances dramatically changed after I joined the course and I found myself travelling every other week and living in areas without internet or even shops at some points. Possibly having these smaller deadline could have helped me focus on smaller chunks of information.

I think that the course is being going pretty well and that it helps to develop someone's own skills.

I am extremely happy with my course, the teachers are very supportive and helpful. The online platform is great as everything you need is there and it's easy to access all the documents, post your progress and contact your tutors.

I chose this course as my son has aspergers and anxiety and was struggling with conventional education and I have found it fantastic. From the very beginning the college were welcoming, friendly and inclusive. The course material is very thorough and the teachers very supportive and engaging. He has been able to text via skype for feedback which is ideal for him and the advice has been very helpful. The teacher has made sure he has done each project thoroughly before moving onto the next and the supervision has been far more involved than I expected which is good. I would definitely recommend the course to anyone especially those who find mainstream education a challenge.

I've been thoroughly impressed with the course content but more importantly the tutor interaction, which is personal, swift and engaging.

I really didn't believe I could be where I am now (at university studying a BA hons in Graphic Design) just a year ago! It's all thanks to Anne and her team at OCAD. So glad I found you and I would definitely recommend OCAD to my friends.

OCAD is brilliant. The staff are understanding and caring. They are incredibly enthusiastic about art. The live lessons are great. My daughter comes away full of which ever artist or art subject they have studied that day. A must for any arty homeschooler.

Probably the best home school program, with fantastic specialist teachers. The costumer service is brilliant, resolving any issue promptly. My daughter is very happy, within one month her art skills have improved immensely. She loves all the subjects and teachers alike. She also likes the fact that all the others students are respectful, well mannered, fun and kind. We give the school 5 STARS

Throughout my 2 years of sixth form I found myself in a very sticky situation not being able to take on and partake in any art courses at my school which I needed in order to fulfill my dream of becoming a makeup artist, so I found OCAD! Their range of courses are fantastic and I decided to go with the Art Foundation Diploma which would help me the most into getting into university to study makeup artistry. The tutors are fantastic, patient and will help you in every way possible in order to assist you in getting the grades you need/want! I was given a lot of support through email and Skype calls as well as info and briefs on the website. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and much to my delight, I passed!!!! I got offers from 3 universities/art schools thanks to the work and portfolio OCAD helped me to create, and am off to do my degree in September! I truly couldn't have done this without OCAD, and I would recommend it to anybody wanting to study for fun or with intent to go onto bigger things!

I couldn't have asked for a better course or tutors at this point in my life.I am a mature student and have always loved art in school but was only average in drawing.I have only gotten through the Exploratory stage and have found it very enjoyable.I look forward to starting the next stage...and hopefully completing the Diploma successfully in the near future.I'm keeping my fingers crossed!Thanks OCAD!Everybody should think of studying with you if they have a wish to succeed.

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
