THE DIPLOMA THAT TEACHES
THE INDUSTRY NEEDS, INSTEAD OF MEMORISING
Our signature formula, mentioned by Channel NewsAsia as the pioneer in new education, integrates marketing & advertising seamlessly into design, arming you with both strategic thinking and analytical skills to thrive in the advertising and design industry.
In a school that doesn't believe in memorising, examinations are replaced by hands-on projects, guided by experienced current practitioners-lecturers, that ensure our students can perform their job efficiently upon graduation.
Benefit from site visits, overseas learning trips, case studies, hands-on assignments and explorations into the contemporary design by creating your portfolio through solid industry-like training as part of our graphic design based diploma programme.
