A little bit of information about our school.

Media Design School is New Zealand’s most awarded tertiary institute for digital and creative technology qualifications. In 2017, we were ranked amongst the top ten schools in the world to provide VFX/Animation qualifications by the The Rookies.

Our teaching style has been created to simulate the real world industry as closely as possible. From their very first day at Media Design School, our students study in a studio-like environment using industry aligned software and technology. They are encouraged to challenge conventions and push boundaries in new and emerging digital technologies through project-based learning and live briefs.

As pioneers in the creative technology education sector, we were the first tertiary institution in the Southern Hemisphere to offer a dedicated programme of study for 3D animation using industry-standard computer graphics software. We were also the first school in New Zealand to provide a specialised games course for aspirational game developers.

What’s more, Media Design School is currently the only school in New Zealand to have partnered with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's PlayStation First Academic Development Programme, giving our students the opportunity to develop games for the PlayStation platform.

Our award-winning programme leaders and lecturers come from a diverse array of digital disciplines and bring their real world industry experience to their student’s learning journey.
