You could be designing, styling and creating displays for major Australian brands – not to mention building a unique and accomplished portfolio and the connections to land your dream job. All before you even graduate.
Throughout the course, you’ll be encouraged to try on a range of industry roles to see how they fit, learning how to respond strategically to client briefs, and gain collaborative and presentation skills. Plus, gain the negotiation and business skills to give you that competitive edge in a growing field.
