After suffering a serious brain injury, Christopher decided that he was unable to complete his studies in art and design at an attendance-based university. However, he discovered that online study was an option that would enable him to continue, and he enrolled on the BA (Hons) Illustration course with IDI, delivered in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire.

“It’s not only given me a new skill and a profession, it’s given me my life back.”

Studying online allowed Christopher to rediscover his creativity, gain new skills, and build the confidence to pursue a career as a professional graphic designer. He excelled in his studies on his way to graduation in November 2014, where he was presented with the Academic Commendation Award.

Hear what he had to say about his experience of studying illustration online with IDI in the video below.
