Media Design School is situated in a modern high rise building in the heart of Auckland’s Central Business District.

Spread over six different floors that cater to the needs of each digital discipline, this campus is unlike any other design school in New Zealand.

From your very first day at Media Design School, you'll be studying in a studio-like environment that fosters creativity and innovation through project-based learning. By being assessed through summative tasks, individual and team projects, the successes and challenges that you'll face along the way will mirror those that are faced by a typical graphic designer, animator, or creative director on a daily basis.

That's because Media Design School's teaching style has been created to simulate the real world industry as closely as possible. Using state of the art industry aligned software and technology you'll be working to live briefs and creating characters, creatures, and campaigns that are beyond your wildest dreams.

Surrounded by supportive staff and fellow students, no day will ever be the same as you work alongside our award-winning faculty and industry connections to produce an outstanding creative portfolio filled with real-world projects and productions.


The central city boasts a harbour, museum, art gallery, several concert and theatre venues, town hall and countless public reserves, parks and recreation areas. 

A variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options cater for a range of interests. The Media Design School campus is not only close to some of Auckland's finest restaurants, cafes and shopping districts; it's close to some great hiking spots, beautiful beaches, and adventure activities galore. 

Popular day trips from Auckland include taking the ferry to Waiheke Island or driving to Matamata to visit Hobbiton, where Lord of the Rings was filmed.


We know that enrolling in a new course at a new school can be an exciting and nerve-wracking prospect. This is why, once you enrol at Media Design School, our wonderful Student Services Manager, Flora, will be your first point of contact at the school. 

Flora is located on Level 20 of Media Design School and she'll be able to help answer any questions related to your studies, about living in Auckland, and pastoral care. You can also contact her by emailing
