Graphic Designer, New to BA


Sep 9, 2008
Hi, I'm a graphic designer from Canada, moving to BA October 17th. I was wondering if anyone knows of a university or college in the city that I would be able to take some design courses at.
This place is FULL of them. No use giving you one or two, since the range is so wide. I live in the northern suburbs and I have around 4 or 5 places nearby where they give courses on GD. First you should pick a place to live, and then span away from there.
Cheers. Joe
