Hey everybody, I'm studying my first year of Graphic Design starting on Monday, it's a level 3 extended Diploma, 2 years. I'm not sure if you guys would know but do you think it would be possible to clear the course in 1 year? I'm going back into education at 21 and seeing as how it's a college course, I've heard the term "mature student" thrown around and that makes me feel old, so I kinda wanna race through this course and get straight onto uni! I heard we're given 8 weeks for the final assignment and that seems like a little bit of overkill, I also hear a lot of people saying that year 1 is normally a walk in the park. I could be totally wrong and I guess I won't know for sure until I start but it would be great to hear your opinion.
It's taken me 5 years, a lot of crappy jobs and many missed opportunities to figure out what I actually wanted to do with life, so I want to get on with it as soon as possible. While I am actually interested and would love a career in Graphic Design, my true focus will be Animation & Illustration. Graphic Design is my fall back in case that doesn't work out.
So let me know what you think! Any insight would be greatly appreciated, cheers everyone.
Which unis have sent theirs?
