Jack Quinn
I feel I have gained a useful, applicable skill even with this introductory course. I now apply these skills to my job as a Digital Marketer and Social Media Manager; I take with me a deeper understanding of SEO, website design and functionality. Even if becoming a web designer isn't your endgame, seeing The Internet from the inside out gives you a unique perspective and an edge over the competition.
Jack Quinn Diploma in Web Design Graduate
Ivan Lukenda
Overall experience is 10/10. From being a total 'newbie' for web development I can now design web pages that look professional and sophisticated. I feel much more confident now with all the skills I've gained. The course was thoroughly explained and what I liked the most our tutor was dedicated to explaining everything to everyone, even individually if there was something complicated to understand.

Michailas Abrosimova Diploma in Web Design Graduate
Stephen Paterson
This course has given me so much knowledge of the Adobe applications, especially Illustrator. I had used Photoshop before from a photography point of view so was familiar with the tools. I've gained enough knowledge and experience from this course to allow me set up my own online business. I plan on developing my skills further by completing the web design course next and who knows after that.
I found the tutors style of teaching very easy to follow and his knowledge was very extensive. I would highly recommend IBAT College as a place to learn and develop your skills.
Stephen Paterson Diploma in Desktop Publishing Graduate
Kirsten McGarr
I had previous knowledge of Photoshop before the course, but what I was most surprised by was when I just fell in love with InDesign, and because of this course I am now thinking of a career in publishing. The Desktop Publishing course has not only given me the qualifications to move forward with my career but also the confidence. Since finishing the course I have gone on to get more work on freelance basis than I would have gotten before the course. I would highly recommend not only the Desktop Publishing course but IBAT College itself for providing such a useful and relevant course offering.
Kirsten McGarr Diploma in Desktop Publishing Graduate
Niall Murray
This course was delivered to the highest standard.  The instuctor was excellent and delivered a great deal of information in ten weeks.  I learned a great deal not only about the software itself but also about graphic design in general.  It has given me the confidence to produce professional looking documents at work and also confidence in choosing the correct layout and design.  I would highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in graphic design and wants to be able to produce modern and professional documents.
Niall Murray Diploma in Desktop Publishing Graduate
I really enjoyed the course and I found Anthony Flynn to be a very good lecturer. He was very patient and provided a lot of constructive criticism.  
I had never used the adobe suite before and I now have a much better understanding of adobe photo shop, indesign and illustrator. It's very practical for my job and I will use it a lot going forward.
I will be recommending this course to my colleagues.
