Google Hangouts with Academy Students

written by


Over the last 12 months our UK Course Specialist and Tutor, Zoe McKeown has done some fabulours Google Hangouts with Students and Graduates. These interviews offer a uniqe insight into what it is like to study with the Academy (regardless of which campus) and of what can be achieved as a Graduate.
This month Zoe chats to Olga Hartnady who is combing being the Mum of a busy 1 year old, with the launch of OH Weddings.  Olga was also our Student of the Month in November and you can read my interview with her here.
If the idea of online study is a little scary for you, you are going to enjoy, ‘How Easy is it to study a course online with the Academy‘, another Google Hangout from Zoe, this time with Jayshree Patel, also from our UK campus.  Jayshree shares her own concerns about studying online and shares some excellent tips for making it work.
We are looking forward to bringing you more of these Hangouts in 2016 and from all of our campuses. To watch more of Zoe’s Hangouts, visit Academy Live via the Wedding Planning Academy.  To find out more about studying with the Academy, click on the link to the campus closest to you below.
