Tips and advice for Students, Graduates, Young Designers and creative Entrepreneurs.
It's almost a year since I left my role as Senior Lecturer back in the UK to move to Iceland. In that time I've achieved so many goals that were on my To-Do list but on there was a 'Student Advice'. I wanted to form an output, a way of offering my answers to all those questions previously asked to me and pass on the same advice to other students. So I got typing and created my first email course.
It simple. You sign up for the FREE emails and you will immediately be sent Day 1 of the 5 Day email course.
The course runs over 5 days so you'll get an email each day. Each email focusses on a different topic and they're packed with information and useful links.
I hope you get loads out of this email course so let's get started and #RockYourDegree
