Hear from our staff and students

Being taught by industry professionals really gets the ball rolling in regard to the quality of work we’re able to produce. I’m working on my portfolio to make sure it’s industry ready. I’ve also been given the opportunity to work on my own project, which I’m taking into my honours year to develop into a product I can sell on the market, or pitch to studios.
