Zaine Kingi was all smiles after winning last week’s “The Incubator” competition on our Auckland Campus. This is the first time we have run the dragons den style competition where the Bachelor of Applied Science students present their innovations to a panel of judges, with the winner taking home a $500 cash prize, toward the implementation of their product.
Yoobee School of Design
Yoobee is pleased to announce the Certificate in Digital Media, will be available online starting 3 March.
The Certificate in Digital Media – Online is a 25-week programme and will be taught 100% online via Yoobee’s online campus. It provides students with a pathway to further study in Graphic Design, Web Development, Animation or Filmmaking. The qualification is also offered at Yoobee’s Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch campuses, and at Manurewa High School and Kelston Girls’ College.
“This programme will help us reach a wider audience both in New Zealand and internationally says Ruth Cooper CEO. “It is for students who don’t live in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, as well as students with disabilities, caregivers and others who have commitments that make it difficult to study full-time on campus.
The Auckland 2014 Scholarship Awards Ceremony was held on Thursday 23rd January.
