Study At The Creative School
Whether you are just jumping into creativity for the first time or are ready to build your career, we have a program for you.
Foundry's 2020 intake is now open, and is set to be our biggest yet. Five career-ready specialisations covering a full spectrum of creative disciplines and even more ways to get the fundamentals and enter directly into the program of your choice.
Try Your Options In The Wild
The Wild is a 6-month creative foundation program where you’ll gain an understanding of key creative fields as well as the fundamental skills and thinking needed to become a successful creative.
You can either use these skills and your qualification to kick-start a change of direction, implement what you’ve learnt in your current position, or take the next step and complete a Foundry Specialisation.
Specialise In Graphic Design
Graphic Design is for the problem solver who’s an artist at heart. It is for those who believe you should judge a book by its cover and who choose their cereal based on how cool the box looks. Graphic design allows you to push your creative limits and explore the world's problems through design thinking and artistic skills.
Specialise In Interior Design
Interior Design is for the space curator who sees the whole picture. It requires a willingness to walk around in the shoes of others and work to solve real human problems in a physical and experiential way. It is for the detail-oriented, the big picture thinker, the placemaker and the emotionally intelligent. Most importantly, Interior Design is about understanding and manipulating the feeling, emotion and purpose of a space.
Specialise in Digital Media & UX
Digital Media & UX is for the closet psychologist who needs a creative outlet. It requires someone willing to practice empathy and not only place themselves solidly in the mind of the consumer, but also translate that experience into a digital solution. If you want to make something beautiful while also developing the coded process behind the beauty, then this may be the pathway for you.
Specialise In Film & Photography
Film & Photography is for the storyteller obsessed with capturing unique perspectives. It is for those who know the power of subtle details and who are willing to experiment to push the limits of visual communication. Beyond this, it requires a willingness to become a little consumed with the form itself — whether as a film buff, TV addict, or photoblog lurker.
Specialise in Content Writing
Content Writing is for the natural wordsmith looking for a story to tell. It’s for the empath, the sharer of knowledge and opinions, the pun-lover, the witty communicator, the purveyor of colourful descriptions. It requires a willingness to play the mediator between a brand and the audience, the ability to translate complex ideas simply and the tools to communicate in a way that puts the audience top of mind.
Upskill In Short Courses
Foundry Short Courses focus on teaching and developing specialised skills from the ground up. Covering the basic technical skills involved in a variety of creative fields, each short course is designed to provide relevant hands-on skills - taught by teachers who are also successful working creatives.
