I was drawn to IADT because of its creative energy and people. Even as a technology student my thinking was heavily inspired by design. The number of students attending IADT made the whole experience much more intimate and made it easy to meet people from the various courses. Lecturers were equally as friendly and approachable, which made classes much more engaging. Applying what we learned rather than just playing the memory game of exams allowed us to challenge our own thinking and further develop our own understanding and knowledge of a given topic.
