These award-winning programmes include a BA in Visual Communications, a Diploma in Copywriting, and a Diploma in Marketing & Advertising Communications. School-leavers and university graduates looking for qualifications to start creative careers in marketing, design, advertising and branding must submit their application via the website here.

There are limited spots and due to the popularity of these courses, candidates are encouraged to apply immediately to avoid disappointment.

“For the past 23 years, Red & Yellow has shaped the creative and advertising industries by training remarkable talent, driven to make a difference in the world,” says chairperson Rob Stokes. “Part of the school’s mission, therefore, is to provide free, premium education to as many students as they can in order to make a real impact on society and further transformation in the industry.”

The recent expansion of the school’s Cape Town campus means that students can anticipate an unrivalled educational experience. The new premises boast a wide open studio-like learning space that emulates the real working world with breakaway areas and lecture rooms. Real brand projects, rubbing shoulders with industry experts, and a rooftop chill zone overlooking the city, are just some of the highlights students can look forward to.
