I began studying with the OCA in 2012. I chose the OCA as it gave me the option of studying in Nigeria, at my own pace and allowed time for other commitments, whilst giving me a qualification recognized in the UK.

Working through the different assignments has encouraged me to fine tune existing skills and techniques, underpinning experimental practice with different materials and trying new methods which I have found exciting.

The feedback and support from tutors, whilst sometimes painful has been crucial to my continued development, encouraging me to push myself and not accept the easy route.
