Find the Study Mode that suits you at the Australian Academy of Graphic Design

A guiding principle here at the Australian Academy of Graphic Design, is to make high quality education accessible to all.  In order to do this, we continuously listen to our students and we are always learning how to adapt and adjust to the busy and demanding lifestyles of the modern world. One of our most important and indeed successful initiatives is our range of study modes that allow students to continue to meet their personal responsibilities while enabling them to embark on their studies. We offer Home Study, Classroom-based and Live Online classes. Each mode has been designed to offer people the opportunity to pursue their passion without turning their whole life upside down. This is one of the many reasons why our students and alumni are finding their best design selves.

Home Study Courses:

This option is entirely flexible and is best suited to those with some self discipline or if you have a changeable or unpredictable schedule.

Perhaps you simply want to experiment with graphic design and see if it’s for you? Home study means you can study at your own pace in your own time. You have the freedom to immerse yourself in the world of graphic design whenever and wherever you want. All of our courses are accredited so you can rest assured that we maintain the highest standards of course content and there is always expert guidance from our tutors. You will basically have everything you need to develop your talents outside of the typical classroom setting.

Key Advantages of Home study modes:

  • Materials can be accessed in a variety of ways. 24/7
  • Self-paced learning approach
  • Our experienced graphic design tutors provide helpful remote support
  • Online discussions with other students through our online learning centre
  • Optional Work placement for some of the courses
  • Practical assignments to apply your design skills

Classroom Courses:

Some people respond well to the more hands-on physical presence that is found in a classroom. Our classroom courses are designed to provide an immersive learning experience. The structure of a classroom plus the meeting of like-minded people is something many students find beneficial to their learning experience. The shared workspace generates a collaborative atmosphere which can be inspirational in a creative environment as well as contributing to the development of technical competency, and real-world application skills, using the latest design technology.  All of which is again, expertly guided by industry professionals.

Key Advantages of Classroom study modes:

  • Collaborative and immersive learning experience
  • Direct contact with experienced graphic design tutors
  • Practical learning journey
  • Cutting-edge facilities and resources

Live Online Classes

Our live online classes are the happy medium between home study and classroom-based options. They provide the structured schedule of a classroom as well as lively collaboration with other students in real time. This option also removes the need to commute or any dependency on a convenient location. Students can enjoy the classroom experience without the need to compromise on their course choices just because the class is too far away or inaccessible. This is an ideal option for those who appreciate the communal aspect of learning but perhaps live in a remote area or cannot commit to travelling.

Key Features of Live Online Classes study modes:

Graphic designs convey a message through visual storytelling and a good graphic design will leave a lasting impression. Every project is an opportunity to demonstrate your originality and create your name in the world of design.
