Advanced Diploma
Eight months extension program
  • The Advanced Diploma Program extends the FZD core training by an additional eight months,
    allowing students to hone in their skills.

    Students will use this extra time to build project-oriented portfolios while further enhancing their design skills. In addition, students enrolled in this program can attend any of the previous classes offered through the 1-year diploma track. These courses are also largely independent of schedules and deadlines – allowing individual students to develop and manage their own workflow and production pipeline.

    **In order to enroll, students must first complete the 1 Year Diploma Program in Industrial Design at FZD.

    This program is open to local Singaporeans and International students. If you have questions, please send us an email at contact@fzdschool.com or give us a call at +65 6702 5328.

    Students will graduate with a Advanced Diploma in Entertainment Design.
