For the past 18 years, ACG Yoobee has been arming creatives with the technical knowhow and practical skills to turn their brilliant ideas into careers. Previously Natcoll Design Technology, we’re part of the Academic Colleges Group of Schools (ACG) - and the largest specialised digital design school in the country, with campuses in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and online. ACG Yoobee programmes embrace new and emerging technologies and the latest media platforms, with pathways from certificates to degree. From Graphic Design, Digital Media, Web Development and Animation, to Filmmaking, Game Art and 3D Graphics, our courses keep you plugged in to industry advances, and on top of your game.
Delivering full time, part time and online programmes, plus the final year of the Open Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Applied Science, ACG Yoobee opens doors to the best digital and design studios in the world.
Our experienced design educators are fully connected with the creative industry. They’re animators, directors, graphic designers and special-effects artists. This keeps ACG Yoobee real, relevant and cutting edge. Friendly, accessible tutors, a supportive environment and practical training enables our students to unleash their creative potential and forge extraordinary careers.
A vibrant community of design practice, our tutors and students share a passion for digital technology and inspired creativity. We collaborate, we innovate, we push boundaries. Our students gain hands-on experience with industry standard software, and learn how business meets art in the creative sector. They graduate with the perfect mix of technical prowess and creative genius for today’s (and tomorrow’s) employers.
At ACG Yoobee School of Design, we create creatives.
