Our Model + Our Partners = Your Qualifications
Foundry partners with educational institutions to deliver industry-relevant creative education in key fields. You’ll learn our content taught by Foundry teachers on Foundry campuses - finishing your study journey with nationally recognised awards and qualifications.
Thinking and Skills
Our unique model teaches via two types of modules, Thinking and Skills. Thinking modules align with an associate degree accredited by a higher education provider, and the skills modules align with a diploma accredited by a vocational provider.
The total fees paid may include both higher education fees and vocational fees, depending on which study option you are looking at.
The main study options at Foundry are:
Partners and Accreditation

Our Short Courses are accredited by Foundry’s own RTO, Foundry Academy (RTO Code 20941), and offered as a fee-for-service option for those wanting to study specific skill sets. On successful completion of a Foundry Short Course you will receive a statement of attainment.

Associate Degree in Applied Design
Commonwealth supported places are available for students enrolling into the Associate Degree of Applied Design. All Commonwealth supported places are substantially subsidised by the Australian Government so that students only pay the 'student contribution' amount for their units of study.
