Why Oakfields College?
Oakfields College has come a long way since opening our first campus in Pretoria in 2006.
We realised after just a few years of running our courses at the Pretoria campus that there was also a strong demand for our courses in Johannesburg and the East Rand, leading us to open a campus in Edenvale and, shortly after, in Somerset West, Cape Town.
A large part of our success has been built on the fact that our courses are extremely practical and our lecturers are experienced industry professionals. Our classes are small, offering individual attention and the different faculties integrate with each other in order to simulate real-life experiences in class. For instance, our public relations and event management students organise the fashion show for our fashion students; our graphic design students design the artwork and posters and our sound students manage the sound and lighting for the show.
Our make-up and special effects students will also be involved with the make-up for the models, whilst the photography and film students will ensure that there are great photos/film to catch and record the highlights!
