Affordable Admission FeeWe work hard to make this course affordable to anyone

We work hard to make this course affordable to anyone. The admission fee of €800 is the best value for money you will find anywhere in the world.

We can make you this offer because we work closely with the companies that will hire you. Since there are already a lot of graduates that work for companies, and they also need designers.

The company that hires you will pay us back the remainder of your education cost - but only if you get hired in a real paid job. You will work for these companies directly, and you will choose where you want (and don’t want) to work.
