Hi everyone! I'm almost 17 and have been working at my family's sign and print business for a year now, and have developed an interest in graphic design. I have 2 years left of free education, and I'm not really bothered about doing a degree in university. I've been training on Lynda a little bit but i find it hard to sit through one video after the next only to forgot what I've just watched, and it doesn't seem to offer what the colleges can offer me. ive been looking at these two courses, one is level 3 (2 years) and the other is a hnc course. (1 year) Hnc: Bedford College & Graphic Design BTEC HNC level 3: North Hertfordshire College > Courses > Art, Design and Media > Level 3 Graphic Design Yr1_10127 Not sure if I'd qualify for the hnc course but I have designed countless leaflets, signs, business cards etc for customers so I guess that counts as a portfolio? It seems like the hnc can teach you in 1 year what the level 3 teaches in 2. if anyone has some advice on this it would be greatly appreciated!
