Interviews with our graduates

Web Designer


While I had already studied art in Italy, I studied design at Yokohama Design College (YDC) for 2 years.
I was able to find a job thanks to the enthusiastic teachers at YDC.
Since it was such a fun school, I actively participated in a lot of activities, such as industry-academia collaboration, internships, school festivals, and the graduate exhibition.
I’m sure you can also have a great experience at YDC!
