Media Design School, New Zealand’s most awarded tertiary institution for digital and creative technology qualifications, is now in Australia, thanks to the collaboration with Torrens University Australia. As pioneers in the creative technology education sector, Media Design School was the first tertiary institution in the Southern Hemisphere to offer a dedicated program in 3D animation using industry-standard computer graphics software and also the first to provide a specialised gaming course for aspirational game developers. In Australia, Media Design School has launched three bachelor degrees in Game Art, Game Programming and Media Design.
Both Torrens University Australia and Media Design School are part of Laureate International Universities, the largest network of universities and higher education institutions in the world. Currently, this network consists of over 70 institutions across 25 countries on all five continents with more than 1,000,000 students.
Media Design School is one of the only schools in Australia to have partnered with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s Playstation First Academic Development Programme, giving students the opportunity to develop games for the Playstation platform.
Our approach to teaching and learning is aligned with industry expectations. Students are encouraged to collaborate, work to deadlines, maintain attendance levels and develop strong communication skills. This approach will equip our graduates to confidently enter the workplace as skilled professionals rather than technicians.
