The popular Design College Australia Website Design Short Course returns this August.

Commencing from Tuesday, 6th August, this short course will be held for one night a week over 8 weeks, and is specifically designed for professional print designers who want to go beyond traditional print skills and advance their knowledge by embracing online web techniques.

This short course is best suited to existing print designers with a minimum of two years industry experience, as students will learn and practice the real world skills required to build and maintain a live website.

The short course is composed of a total of eight evening classes, with one class conveniently held onsite each week at the Design College Australia campus in Fortitude Valley.

The course itself is entirely interactive and hands on as Design College Australia tutors will help students produce a live online website in house, which can be altered to suit the professional interests of the student.
