How does designing, travelling, winning international design awards, while studying for your design diploma sound to you?
If it sounds fun, we want you.
There is no coincidence that almost half of our students are already degree holders who still choose to study for a diploma in our school.
Our signature formula (mentioned by Channel NewsAsia as the pioneer in new education) that integrates marketing & advertising into design, makes sure every student get to hone their creative skills during their time in our school.
Our students also benefit from site visits to tech companies/creative agencies, current case studies by trainers who are practitioners, hands-on assignments and regular overseas learning trips to cities like New York, Bali, Seoul, Thailand, etc., to learn the best practises from various creative directors in these inspiring locations.
