Who We Are

The Pacific Design Academy was founded in 1991 to provide quality education in the design arts. From our earliest program offerings in Interior Design, the Academy has grown to become the pre-eminent private design school in Victoria. Our classes are led by practicing professional designers, which ensures our curriculum is appropriate to the needs of the design marketplace.

The Pacific Design Academy is an accredited college registered with the Private Career Training Institution Agency and has authority to grant diplomas in all full time courses listed on this website.

Our Approach

The academy's instructors are working professionals who bring current, up-to-date ideas into the classroom. Our classrooms and studios are bright and well equipped. Our computer labs are home to Macintosh computers with cutting-edge software, making certain that we meet and exceed design industry standards. Our limited class size guarantees that students get the individual attention they need to successfully master new skills.
