Media Design School Presents: MDS Unleashed | Open Day

Unleash your passion for creativity at MDS Unleashed, our biggest Open Day of the year!

Join us on Saturday, May 27th from 10am – 3pm

Get the full MDS experience & come meet our friendly faculty, explore our studio-like learning environment, tinker with our state-of-the-art tech, and see for yourself why Media Design School is New Zealand’s most awarded tertiary provider of creative and digital technology qualifications.

Whether you are a seasoned designer or have merely an itch, Media Design School can help you find your footing. At MDS Unleashed, each programme has a dedicated space where you can chat with our academics, undergo portfolio reviews, & check out our previous student projects in designated showcase areas. Our Course and Career Advisors will also be on hand all day at the Enrolment booth to help you with your application and queries.

Our Foundation and Undergraduate sessions will run from 10am to 3pm with two 45-minute presentations and drop-in sessions all day. Our Graduate and Postgraduate programmes will each run one 45-minute session. Bring along your portfolio (on a USB or device) and our team will provide a review to let you know if you’re ready to apply or give you advice if there is anything you need to add.
