The Academy of Design's specialization in the Creative Industries has proved over the years to be a very successful formula: where students are able to study within a creative environment, experience other fields of study, understand diversity and innovation across many fields of creative study and most importantly be able to integrate and affiliate in projects and assessments from other areas of study. This in its self promotes innovation from students. It pushes many creative boundaries and produces highly professional portfolios for entry into the workforce.
We are a private college dedicated to providing our students a great study environment teamed with the most current and relevant currirulum. Our results are achieved by small class size to trainer ratios that bring out the best in the students and their studies.
