It was a great course to do! I learned so much within 6 months, they helped me unleash my creative potential and helped strengthen my weaknesses in Graphic Design. I would recommend Hunter TAFE for EVERYONE!

It allowed me to learn about design and after also studying a bachelor at Sydney Uni I felt this was a morn hands on course. It was a great course and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to study design and would do this instead of a private course

Overall a good experience. Don’t expect to be taught everything. This course requires the learner to be proactive, have a passion for design, research, read every design book you can get your hands on and put knowledge in to practice.

Teachers cared for students progress and development over the course, however some subjects were light on prepared knowledge due to updates with programs or teachers weren't fully prepared to handle specific programs. Experience would have been improved if the Hornsby campus wasn't put through the ringer with government implemented changes that were not well thought out.

Course was great. Taught me a lot of new skills. But personally wasn’t enough information about how to start your own business or people/sites to help or help in finding a career in existing companies

There is no question that this is the best institution to study fashion design in Australia. The best in the industry have come out of this design school under the guidance of some of the best teachers and industry professionals. Be prepared to work hard because this is not an easy course by any stretch!

The online learning portal is easy to use and follow. The assessments are well written and have specific details and requirements. The content is very current. It would be nice however to have more strict timelines to get tasks done.

The Certificate IV is an intensive and fascinating course that encourages creativity and passion while instructing on a variety of subjects. The course is split into the Art stream and the Programming stream. Both assume no prior knowledge and work from the absolute ground up to give you fundamental knowledge in either Art or Programming. The course is suitable to be taken by someone who has never touched Unity and C# or Photoshop and Maya. Although some prior knowledge of the software does help. There are two joint classes between the streams. One teaches about the Australian game design industry and gives advice on making connections and promoting in the industry. The other has you making games in composite groups of artists and programmers from the first class, giving you real experience working to a deadline and collaborating with others. The only small criticism is that the course ended up being 21 hours a week instead of the at the time advertised 18, which disrupted some people’s work schedules.
