Testimonial

I always had an interest in both Digital Media and Web Development and was looking for a course that incorporated these two disciplines. When I researched the BFEI course in Web Design and Digital Media, I knew it would be the perfect choice for me. The course content was engaging and the support from the teachers was incomparable. After completing this course, I was offered an internship with one of Ireland's leading digital agencies. Completing this course, coupled with the experience gained during my internship, allowed me to build the foundation for the career I have today with one of the world's largest tech corporations.
