Cat Balfour – Graphic Design Year Four
“Whitecliffe gives you more insight into what happens after study,” says Year Four Graphic Design student Cat Balfour.
Whitecliffe’s strong relationship with industry means students feel informed and confident about life after school. “You are taught classes like business studies and also pushed to do an internship within a design firm. This is a huge opportunity and not many other tertiary programmes offer such things.”
She loves the small, friendly environment. “Working in close proximity with other students is a huge benefit - learning and growing together and being able to bounce ideas off one another.”
Cat has taken big strides forward in her design thinking and skills. In Year Four she came second in her class in the mid-year reviews, with her work selected to go to the Best Awards.
“Being at Whitecliffe has made me push myself harder than I ever have before. It’s very motivational,” she says.
