At the Stellenbosch Academy, we are obsessed with one thing: The quality of work produced by our students. This informs all our decisions. With our range of programmes and the awards we have won for our work, we are proud to say that this obsession is entirely worthwhile. This culminated in the Loerie Awards naming us the best creative school in the country in 2012.


At the Academy, we realise that one of our most important assets are our lecturers. We employ a diverse range of people with a diverse range of skills, talents and outlooks – this means we can offer our students the best possible facilitation and encouragement to be the best in South Africa. See our staff here.


We offer a full-time BA Degree in Visual Communication (3 years) as well as a full-time Higher Certificate in Commercial Photography (1 year).
We also run a range of creative short courses throughout the year.

The Stellenbosch Academy of Design and Photography first opened its doors in 2002 and since then has grown from strength to strength. The Academy has worked tirelessly to achieve the goal of becoming the best creative school in the country by nurturing a new generation of highly motivated, technologically adept creatives. Situated, by choice, in the historic town of Stellenbosch, we count our size as an advantage – smaller classes mean more contact time between students and lecturers. At the Academy, we have over 2000 square metres of space, with a number of lecture theatres, workrooms, photographic studios and chill out areas for our students to use. Students are equipped with both Apple and PC workstations in their respective studios.

At the Academy, you are going to work hard, but you are also going to see the results. After three years of late nights, early mornings and countless hours – our students leave with some of the best portfolios in the industry, helping them to find jobs with some of the best advertising agencies, illustration and photographic studios in the country.
