Student Testimonials

Manuel Cancino


At the very first moment, I felt a warm welcome from the staff and a real need to teach the students correctly. The teachers were sincerely interested in me, and keen to find out what I wanted to achieve from the study, they helped me to understand the course subjects, such as marketing strategies, social media strategies, marketing communication plans and just to name a few. Moreover, the course is so much more than just submitting assessments.

During my time in ACDC, I have built up my own videography business, my teacher supported me with marketing plans and marketing strategies, the school helped my business grow by offering me many video-making opportunities.

Gina Fu


I must say it is probably one of the few right decisions that I’ve made in my life. Within the first two weeks of the screen and media course at ACDC, I knew it was the right place. Knowledge and skills that I’ve gained during the studies were practical and they’re something that I can use straight away and see immediate results. Words can’t describe how excited I was when I created my first poster in Photoshop. Another thing that I loved about the course was the opportunity to participate in an internship program.

Work experience in the creative industry is absolutely essential if you want to work as a designer, and as someone who had no experience, I was so glad that Australian City Design College provided me with the opportunity to have an internship with the Fintech Ecosystem Company. Intern experience has made the transition into my first paid job as a video editor at a start-up company. By the time I graduated, I’ve received enough hands-on experience that secured me a full-time position as a designer.
