Our MAD Story

Diploma in Media, Arts & Design (DMAD) is a merger of 8 diplomas into a single diploma. These collective diplomas shared a common trajactory into the media, arts and design sectors. For the benefit of our student body, the school unified these courses into into a single diploma, with 7 specialisations.

All our first-year DMAD students will be immersed in a common foundation semester called the “Foundry” before choosing their specialisation. They will continue to work collaboratively across specialisations, building a transdisciplinary mindset.

This holistic approach is in response to the rapid shifts and disruptions to the creative landscape. The consolidation allowed for a more robust curriculum, enpowering our students to pivot with agility to the dynamic needs of the creative industry.

At the heart of this evolution is our students’ best interest. MAD is dedicated to equip our graduates with confidence that enables them to forge ahead into their future creative pathways.
