I love the enthusiasm of the teaching staff at GIA. If I were to change anything about GIA - I would great a lovely bell that dings for breaks since its a school campus, also they should provide free food, add living quarters and provide drafting tables for the Jewelry Design course.
If you have an interest in the Jewelry industry, my school is where you will want your accreditations to be from on your resumé. Considering the school is one of the most recognized one in the world, this makes it the most accepted when applying for a position in the industry
My courses are pretty simple and easy to do, despite the high cost needed to cover the content. Practically, anyone can take a course and receive a diploma in their field of interest provide they are devoted to the course work.
