Introduction

Raffles College of Design and Commerce (Raffles College Pty Ltd) is a unique education provider based in Sydney, Australia specialising in design, visual communication and business. We deliver premium vocational and higher education programs from Certificates through to Bachelor Degrees and Masters Degrees.

We've been around for over 30 years. Keeping pace with industry, we deliver excellent courses and produce graduates who are well respected and successful in their careers. We do this by having lecturers who are active in industry, so their teaching constantly benefits from a real-time knowledge of what's going on out there.

In 2005 the college joined the Raffles Education Corporation, Asia Pacific's premier creative design and business education provider with a network of over 28 colleges across the Asia Pacific region, including locations such as Singapore, China, Thailand and New Zealand. As part of the Raffles Education Corporation, there is an exciting opportunity to study part of your degree at one of our other group locations. A big advantage in the global world of design influenced and enhanced by local cultures and ideas.

As an individual member of the Raffles community, we believe that students will be able to develop their knowledge and experience in the company of their peers. Our aim is to equip students with a strong set of skills and the ability to keep learning, enabling them to enter the industry confidently and continue to grow and develop as their career advances. The focus is on the student - their individual ambition and talent, their professional and personal development.

Whether you already have a career pathway in mind, or you’re unsure which direction to take, we can help you open the door to a future that’s full of possibilities. Our staff – your lecturers and the dedicated team supporting them – really want to inspire you to get the most out of your course.
