Frequently Asked Questions

What platform do you use for online classes?

ADMI has a customized, proprietary learning management system program designed to combine all the benefits of on-campus and online learning. Our platform offers best-in-class features such as in-class webinars, student satisfaction surveys, calendar integration and more.

How can you offer a practical education online?

There are two types of classes at ADMI – those that are fully online and those that are hybrid. Whichever you choose, you can expect a fully practical education. This is because all classes at ADMI have an experienced industry practitioner guiding you as you do your best work. Most classes, including sound production, animation and graphic design, allow you to exchange ideas with your mentors and classmates even when you are working remotely. However, a few classes, namely photography and film and TV, integrate intensive practical projects on campus.

What if I don’t have equipment?

We use a lot of online tools that substitute for having your own equipment. But if you still need your own, talk to our Finance Department to see if you qualify for the Creative Toolbox, our special equipment financing program. You may be eligible to get a laptop, software and equipment to get started turning your creativity into a career.

But will my teachers know how to teach online?

ADMI’s faculty are required to undertake at least 3 levels of training on how to teach online. All core faculty have certifications from top teacher training programs, including the University of New South Wales and the University of Leeds.

I’m worried about the cost of data, though….

Don’t worry.  ADMI’s got you! Our Distance Learning program provides students with free data for all school-related logins, making learning from home super-affordable.
