Appear in the more searches with guaranteed presence

Our advanced search system makes sure the Premium Listings appear higher in results. Your pages are also connected with all your student pages for extra exposure.

Stand out and look great with enhanced features

All school’s are eligible to create a standard listing page. They are a great way to get people talking about your school, but they have limited features in comparison.

Trusted by the best

International visibility, both through student uploads to The Rookies, and from our listing on the school directory, is a great help especially for a small college like ours that has a mandate to be affordable while providing high-quality programs. The School Directory is an excellent way to let the world know about the programs we offer!- Maxine Schacker - Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art & Design
Success at The Rookies is a great boost for the whole Animation Programme at the Hertfordshire. From the staff's point of view, it lets us know we're on the right track with what we teach and it gives us a yardstick to measure out efforts against the rest of the world. For the students, it helps to show them just how much it's possible to achieve if they apply themselves and put their Animation, Games and VFX work out there to be seen.- Neil Gallagher - Hertfordshire University
The Rookies provides Media Design School with a fantastic opportunity to benchmark our student’s work against other tertiary providers world-wide. The breadth and depth of experience of the judging panel that The Rookies put together each year encourages our students to put forward their very best work for consideration and inspires them to deliver the latest in creative digital technologies.- Justin C. Hare - Media Design School
