I am pleased to announce that Virtu Design Institute Pty Limited has been purchased by Australian Pacific College an Australian quality VET provider. Virtu Design Institute Pty Limited, now trading as APC Design School is the manifestation of a long held desire to establish an independent place of high-quality education that is international in scope, accessible to all who wish to engage in sincere learning.

APC Design School is face to face, online and blended and excitingly innovative, as it offers students new ideas about its disciplines and their practice. We offer our students the opportunity to hone their skills, knowledge, and experience so that they leave with competencies that are measurable, understood and appreciated by future employers.

By studying at APC Design School students will achieve an Australian nationally accredited qualification, which can only be delivered by an Australian Registered Training Organisation (RTO). To be a RTO we need to meet the requirements of the Australian National VET Regulator (NVR) and this is assessed by the Australian Skills Quality Authority(ASQA).

As a result of its differentiated method of delivery, APC Design School will often attract students who are in full or part time employment, who, at the same time, wish to pursue their education.

APC Design School courses are offered face to face, blended and online supported by a comprehensive Student Information System and a state of the art Learning Management System. Students will find an engaging environment and will, be offered through our internship work placement program learning opportunities in high quality work environments.

APC Design School engages with the professional community to draw on well respected individuals to be involved in its governance, its academic management and its learning and teaching activities. Virtu is a member of the Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET) and the Design Institute of Australia (DIA).
