From day one, there was instant communication without having to wait more than only an hour for a response. Additionally, there is direct communication between the student and one primary mentor. This helps the student greatly as it provides them with a reliable mentor who has knowledge of your achievements throughout this course as well as providing relevant information for both current and future modules.
Furthermore, the Weblynx website is very appealing while maintaining a simple, easy to use navigation system. It is very consistent in its design which helps the students to navigate with ease as well as being visually appealing. Additionally, the information on this website for The Professional Graphic Design Diploma Course is very reliable and relevant with hyperlinks and attachments that work instantly. The information directly relates to this particular course and starts with the basics in order to cover every aspect of graphic design. It provides the students with a subscription of LinkedIn which are a series of videos/tutorials that relate to every aspect of graphic design. Weblynx allows for both beginners and self-taught designers to master the fundamentals of graphic design while building their skills in the right way to ensure maximum achievement.
I am finding this course very enjoyable and interesting. It is exactly what it states it would be and provides professional insight into the world of graphic design. It is captivating as the assessments are all very diverse with both written and practical components and contains relevant information prior to each assessment to aid you in its completion. Each module assessment is also written in easy to follow steps and provides the students with how heavily each part of the assessment will be weighted in marks. I find this very helpful as it allows me to manage and plan the different parts of my assessment and the amount of time that should be spent on them.
This course enables me to build my graphic design skills in a welcoming and comfortable environment with access to a very supportive and knowledgeable mentor. Currently, I am a third of the way through my course and I am loving every second of it! It is exactly what I love doing and provides me with the essential knowledge to continue to build my future in graphic design.”
“This is the first diploma I have done online, as I really needed the convenience to study when and where it suited my busy life. Being able to fit in an hour of study whenever I can has made my journey to certification so much easier.
I found the course website very easy to use, and when I was getting set up and logging in to the courses for the first time, the steps were simple and easy to follow. I reached out to my Mentors, Helen and Steve, for support while I was getting used to how everything worked, and their responses were fast and very friendly. I’ve always felt I could email at any time and get a helpful response.
The way the coursework is presented is really engaging, with very knowledgeable and expert presenters on video, really thorough articles on various aspects of each topic, and links to industry organisations, blogs and design communities for me to join and explore.
The course is set out in easy to follow sections, each one concentrating on one concept, system or topic at a time, then linking everything together at the end. For example, the print module was absolutely invaluable. Knowing how to present my finished work to a printer so that they have everything they need, and all the colours and finishes are accurately added and specified is something that will help me build great relationships with the printers I use. This is a module which really stuck out so far for me as getting ‘job-ready’.
Each module requires an assessment to be presented at the end, demonstrating that the topics covered have been understood. I really found the instructions for the assignments clear, and the feedback constructive and speedy. I’m very much enjoying the course, and know that I will be referring back to my notes for ever. The detail included is so relevant for every aspect of creating good design, that I cannot think what I would do without it.”
“Thank you for your great feedback, it was very valuable and I revisited the pages to align everything as recommended. It’s something I’ll pay attention to in the future.
I was very much drawn to and appreciate the mentoring aspect of your course. My experience with other online learning establishments is that they are so busy trying to tick boxes for their courses to meet stringent requirements that the system has become impersonal, even robotic.
I’m only two modules into this course and it’s been a massive learning curve for me; from opening InDesign for the first time just a few weeks ago, to building the skills to develop great looking content.
I’m enjoying it so much. I left the last module thinking ‘so many fonts to choose from, where do I start?’ Then I opened module 3 and there it all is!!
I can’t wait to learn more and I’m so proud of my mark!”
“This design course approach is holistic, promoting lateral thinking and awareness of fine detail crucial to design. Pertinent to modern design, the course pays homage to the traditional fundamentals inherent in design, and provides a base for lifelong learning in this ever-evolving industry. Most of all it was a ton of fun to study, and made all the more enjoyable because there is no rush to get it done. The course fit perfectly into my schedule, and communication with my mentors was always prompt, and feedback thorough.”
“It has been a pleasure learning and developing my skills through the Professional Graphic Design Diploma.
The Mentors are very experienced, which is evident through the extensive detail they have put into creating and updating every module throughout this course.
They are very supportive and responsive, and when contacted they ensure to assist the student in the best possible way. They are friendly and very easy to chat with which creates a wonderful and welcoming environment for the student.
The Professional Graphic Design Diploma is an extensive but fun and enjoyable course which built my knowledge and skills on the fundamentals of design, and It branches out to particular projects like logo design, marketing, multi-page layouts and many more to ensure a wide understanding on all aspects of the design industry. This is fantastic as it built my skills in many areas and helped me to understand my strengths and potential weaknesses in those areas.
The Professional Graphic Design Diploma also covers topics on Print and Print Management, Marketing and Electronic Media which is essential in the current world of evolving Graphic Design platforms.
The duration of the Professional Graphic Design Diploma is suitable for both full time and part time studies and I was able to complete the entire course within two years while maintaining a full time job.
This availability and self-paced environment is beneficial and enables the students to effectively balance work life with their study. It also lightens the pressure as there are no intense exams or deadlines which enables the students to work to the best of their ability.
This course has enabled me to build my skills as a graphic designer and to become confident and vigilant in my work. It has been a pleasure to complete, and I have enjoyed every part of it!
Thank you again for this wonderful experience! “
“I would like to thank you for a great program that I’ve enjoyed. I’m proud of what I was able to achieve and learn and hope that you can be proud of me as your student as well.”
“I certainly never enjoyed doing my Business degree as much as this course. As much as I enjoy being a mother is it really important for me to have that special time to do what I love.”
“Loving this Course so much! It is ideal because I have a full-time job and I can work at my own pace, and actually take the time to ABSORB the information. I have tried to do similar courses before but I did not get anywhere near the care and attention as I do in this one”
“I appreciate the design of the course in that it does not rush students through assignments. The discipline involved in doing research, going out and getting a product, studying it and writing about it can contribute towards the learning the realities of life as a designer.
Because I like the design of the course (not too easy), and because I am committed, I hope to get out of it the skills I desire to cultivate.”
“Thanks for your great advice over the years!”
“I am ready and excited to enter this world of Graphic Design!”
“I really enjoyed the course, I enjoyed learning, and even though I have been working in Print for fifteen years I learnt a bunch!
This course will very much fill a void in the current curriculum, as it is very practical and clearly explains everything about print process. We see a lot of designers coming straight out of university who do not know even the simple things such as how to prepare artwork for print. Even when we explain it to them they don’t understand why…
This course contains information that most graphic designers have to learn on the job, so to have it available for the students at their initial introduction to design is a real plus.
The WebLynx College Print Management course really pushes the importance of print in todays society. It is informative, clearly written and very easy to follow.
Understanding commercial printing processes is essential to good design and the Print Management component explains this well.
For students to learn so early in their training all about designing for print goes a long way to create great designers and help to avoid client disappointment, especially as most of the issues that printers encounter are associated with lack of knowledge and clients expecting something that is not possible with the materials chosen.
From a manager’s perspective I find that the segment on print and print management hits the nail on the head, and everything that your WebLynx College mentors say is correct – I guess that is why we have such a good relationship!
The course covers ethics and integrity well, especially in encouraging development of respectful and professional supplier/designer/client partnerships.
The training provided on delivering artwork for printing is spot on!”
