Term 3 Portfolio

This portion of their education will ensure that students are wholly ready for the workforce by applying their knowledge and skills to real-life scenarios.



I really had an amazing work culture at MAEGS which is one of the reason I would love to work or learn here. Lecturers are very supportive, and we actually have time to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Which I think is really important if you are a designer who has to sit in front of a computer all day long. The unique part about MAGES is that they allow students to be themselves and give them the freedom to use their own creative and art style without boxing them in with rules.
