“Raffles has taught me industry skills that I question if others would be able to get from other educational Institute in Sydney. Allowing me to develop a profound creative process and unique style that has been tailor made over the past three years of my degree. This is made possible by the devoted teachers and lecturers, that often provided me with personal reviews and critiques, that I was able to grow from. Being in my third and final year I can safely say that the friendships and skills that I’ve formed at Raffles has been life changing.”
“Raffles has allowed me to create really strong conceptual work and discover that design is far more than just the aesthetics. I learnt this from my teachers giving me such valuable feedback when working through assignments during my classes and this has just really made me appreciate the design process a lot more.”
