I would highly recommend St John’s Central College to anybody who finds themselves in a similar position to myself.

Having been out of the education system for many years and needing to change careers due to circumstances, St John’s Central College was the ideal choice.

In my own case, I signed up for a multimedia course as I always had an interest in photography, video production and the desire to learn new subjects such as web design and animation.

I can honestly say having studied in St. John’s for two years has been invaluable to me, and helped me with my decision to continue my education in multimedia out in CIT.

At present, I am half way through my second year of a four-years BA honors degree in multimedia, this would not have been possible without first learning the fundamentals of multimedia through the course at St John’sCentral College.
