About The Academy of Design

The Academy of Design in Australia has been providing modern tertiary education to students since 1998.

Our founder Dr Robert Treseder has been our director and still is, to this day. Our institution was inaugurated by the Australian Academy of the Arts in the year of its founding.

A registered training organisation

We have CRICOS registration as well. We are dedicated to providing our students with academic and hands-on experiences of the highest quality. Since 2006, the Academy has been offering bachelor degree programs in its own right.

Bachelor of Design Arts Degree

We are the only tertiary institution in the country to offer a Bachelor of Design Arts degree. It is accredited by OTTE and was developed in cooperation with the Australian Academy of the Arts. Our Bachelor of Design Arts enables students to take major and sub-major combinations in several different programs.

These include fashion and costume design, graphic and digital design, communication design, fashion and costume design, visual arts and filmmaking and photography.

The Academy of Design Services

Students who prefer to pay their tuition fees in advance can take advantage of the monthly payment schedule arranged by The Academy of Design.

Students can choose to participate in the FEE-HELP scheme. It is designed to help them with the payment of tuition fees through the use of a loan. The student loan is repaid when the borrower's annual income after graduation reaches a set threshold. Other forms of financial assistance are available as well. Centrelink is a provider of benefits to students who meet the eligibility requirements.

Loans for emergencies and more

We provide small personal loans to students who find it difficult to meet any urgent financial needs. There are several federal and state agencies that provide financial assistance to students in need.

Bank loan options

The major banks in the country offer student loans of various sizes and repayment terms as well.  You can find these products on the websites of lenders and in their local branches.
