CAREER-ORIENTED COURSES

Our courses meet market needs because we consult with industry experts regularly.

EXPERIENCED LECTURERS

Our lectures are for the most part experienced and successful practitioners who enjoy lecturing as much as they do working. Classes are geared towards guiding students, rather than just lecturing.

TRUE LIFE PROJECTS

To ensure that our students are able to apply their knowledge, we ensure that all design students work on true-to-life projects. The work is given to the students by real designers, who also mark the projects once they are completed.

IN-SERVICE TRAINING

All students registered for the HE Qualifications are expected to spend at least six weeks in in-service training at a company in their chosen industry. All courses include non-creative subjects like project management, business management, as well as marketing.

As a continuously growing education group we are currently based in

4 CITIES AND A DISTANCE CAMPUS

We have been offering excellence in education by design for more than 3 decades but never forget that the reason for our existence is our people.
