Meet the Academic TeamGraphic Design & Multimedia Design Department
Our educators are more than teachers. They are creative practitioners and experts in their own professions, bringing students into close contact with industry and helping students explore different job oportunities available. Collectively, their diverse backgrounds and wealth of cultural and industry knowledge translate into an added learning advantage for students.
With small class sizes, each student receives personal attention and mentoring. Lecturers are well aware of each student’s strengths and progress and help them reach for their unique potential.
