Theory and Practicality – Get it All at Oakfields College!

Theory and Practicality – Get it All at Oakfields College!

 

I heard about Oakfields College through a YouTube advertisement and I was very interested based on the variety of fields that were on offer in the arts. As a recording and gigging musician, I wanted to study film so that I could direct my own music videos and live performances. Based on the quality of work that I saw from the advertisement, I knew that it would be of great value for me to study film at Oakfields College. And I was not disappointed.

What I like most about Oakfields College is the great balance between theory and practice. From the get-go, there is a strong emphasis on understanding the theory related to your chosen field, as well as an immediate application of that theory. Having studied Finance (Honours) at UCT before coming to Oakfields College, I have consistently concluded that I have learnt more here than at university.
The benefit that you can gain from an institution that teaches both in theoretical and practical terms is that your skills are immediately useful in the working world; whereas my finance knowledge still requires even more development in the working world before I could even dream of starting my own company.

The culture at Oakfields College is also conducive to inspiring student creativity.Everything from friendly and helpful staff, to a very artistic work space; an upbeat and multi-cultural student culture and some of the best equipment and software relating to your chosen field. I can honestly say that I have learnt a lot in my two years here and I believe that my level of professionalism has also improved drastically.

It is with these realisations that I would like to encourage prospective students to choose Oakfields College. The value I gained from being here was far greater than the fees I paid and the lifelong friendships and associations I have developed are truly priceless.



Thank you so much to Oakfields College
