Testimony of a student in BTS and Bachelor in Graphic Design:


"I started the first two years of medical and bio year in college before it was understood can not be for me. Meanwhile I spent a lot of time in Photoshop and was interested in the pub. I stumbled upon the Autograf school and during my interview to get in MANAA, I was pleasantly surprised with the human side of the school, the head teacher seemed to know all students well, and listen to them. There was a good atmosphere. In MANAA, I felt more in my element in medicine. The atmosphere was very pleasant and I was not the only one with more than twenty years. I discovered drawing and graphics process that I wanted. For the year-end training, the trainers help us a lot. It is thanks to my teacher DTP, Michel Lefebvre, I got an internship in a company that subsequently kept me professional contract for BTS graphic design alternately. It is a small company in which I am attached to the communication service. I'm the only graphic designer, which allows me to handle both the creation and execution.

BTS are like a small family, class of twenty students are more conducive to work the huge lecture halls of the university. There is a constructive and friendly atmosphere. Trainers as the administrative team know us individually, we are not just a name on a list. I also greatly admire the career of some trainers. Eventually, I would taste as Artistic Director, but my ideal would be to become a photographer in advertising agency. For now, I plan to get my Bachelor BTS and to continue my Master of Arts in Graphic Design Director Autograf. "
