Find Your Place In The World With The Wild

Learn From Global Leaders

Every session you'll be taking part in a skills tutorial led online by an industry super star who will walk you through the software and workflows you'll need to master. These tutors have been chosen for their experience and expertise, but also for their finesse with the software they teach and how engaging they are as presenters.

Your Personal Learning Mentor

During your study you'll be equipped with your own personal learning mentor who is available to assist you through every step of your creative journey.

Find Yourself

One of the main reasons people take time away from studies is to pursue some form of self-discovery. Whether it’s through travel, work or finding your own independence, you need some time to find out who you are before you can even begin to comprehend what you want to do with your life.

Self-Paced, Not Self-Directed

The Wild can be turned up and down to suit the realities of the world around you, that’s why we set a one year window for completion. While most will complete the course in approximately six months. Some will finish earlier and others later. This is by design.

Trial Creative Fields

Through completion of The Wild, you’ll try the spectrum of creative industries and gain insight and knowledge into the careers available to you. By trying everything at least once, you’ll know that you’ve made the right decision before you take the next step in your career path.

Set Yourself Up For Success

Statistics show us that even before a global pandemic, 20% of all Australian students drop out of their studies within the first year. This is largely because courses are not what was expected and study loads are too big of a shock to the system. 

The Wild is designed to give you a glimpse into your future without needing to gamble tens of thousands of dollars in student debt on a course you hope you will like. Get a feel for your options, find your place and then make a commitment to further study with confidence.
