“I am now even more convinced that I have chosen the right school! I really appreciate that you want the Design Ecademy to be a leading-edge online programme but at the same time, you ensure that it is also a traditional school. I can see that even if you do not know your online students personally, you really care for them and you want them to succeed. It certainly motivates me to continue to do my best.” Laurence Meyer,

The Design Ecademy’s Principal Maria Flynn, praised Laurence’s work and said she believes Laurence is clearly on her way to great things. We really do our best to make our courses effective but nothing can be achieved without the students applying themselves. Laurence has achieved excellent results and the work she has produced on the Higher National Diploma course shows her passion, creativity and the willingness to work hard and achieve the best outcome she can. I sincerely commend Laurence and we are all so pleased that one of our students achieved external recognition by winning this ASID competition.
