Spread over several different floors catering to the needs of each digital discipline, this campus is unlike any other design school in New Zealand.
From your very first day at Media Design School, you’ll be studying in a studio-like environment that fosters creativity and innovation through project-based learning.
By being assessed through summative tasks, individual and team projects, the successes and challenges that you’ll face along the way will mirror those that are faced by a typical graphic designer, animator, or creative director on a daily basis.
That’s because Media Design School’s teaching style has been created to simulate the real world industry as closely as possible. Using state of the art industry aligned software and technology you’ll be working to live briefs and creating characters, creatures, and campaigns that are beyond your wildest dreams.
Surrounded by supportive staff and fellow students, no day will ever be the same as you work alongside our award-winning faculty and industry connections to produce an outstanding creative portfolio filled with real-world projects and productions.
The Media Design School library is open during normal school hours; however there is also an eLibrary for when you need to access academic resources outside of these times. The library has an extensive collection of books, magazines, and journals designed to support your studies and inspire your creative work.
Enroling in a new course at a new school can be an exciting and nervewracking prospect. This is why, once you enrol with Media Design School, our wonderful Student Services Manager will be your first point of contact. The Student Services Manager will be able to help answer any questions that you may have about Media Design School and Auckland in general.
Media Design School will provide you with the latest, most up-to-date hardware and software relevant to your respective disciplines so that all of your creative concepts and projects are aligned with what the industry is currently producing.
Media Design School is located in the heart of Auckland City, close to restaurants, cafes and shopping – but also within easy access of great hiking spots, beautiful beaches and an array of adventure activities.
Auckland (or Tāmaki Makaurau) is New Zealand’s most populated city with 1.4 million people currently calling it home. The central city boasts a harbour, museum, art gallery, several concert and theatre venues, a town hall and countless public reserves, parks and recreation areas.
Whether you’re on or off campus, there will always be something to do in Auckland. We offer a number of social events throughout the course of the year and our Student Ambassadors are known for organising LAN parties, film nights, Zine clubs and a whole range of other activities for you to get involved with so that you can meet students and faculty from across the school.
What’s more, Media Design School arranges a number of events throughout the course of the year, both on and off campus, where students can show off their work to influential members of the creative community and to the general public.
