Learning with 

Yoobee School of Design

Students of all ages and backgrounds study with us. Some are school leavers, while others have taken time-out from the workplace to retrain. This combination of ages and experiences gives us a unique feel and creates an environment that for every student to realise his or her potential.

Small classes

Class numbers are restricted to 20 students (15 for the Diploma of Digital Media (Advanced)). We insist on such a high staff to student ratio because it allows you quality time working closely with our experienced tutors. Each student works at his or her own workstation.
