My studies at OFI have got me a place at DIT in the Games Design course and I took this programme to become more proficient in the creative aspects of gaming. I would highly recommend doing a PLC course in OFI to another student, because I feel that it gets students into the mentality of college life. I found the lecturers of OFI to be great, they were always helpful and gave time to the students.
