AAA School of Advertising

About

The AAA School of Advertising was established 30 years ago by the Association of Advertising Agencies (AAA) to train young talent into the advertising industry and has been known as the official higher education institution for the South African Advertising Industry ever since. Since then, we have trained thousands of industry professionals. 

 

The AAA School of Advertising is the only institution in Africa to be accredited by the IAA (International Advertising Association). Presently, only 43 leading universities, colleges, and professional schools located throughout the world hold IAA course accreditation. It is the course, not the university, college or tertiary institution that is accredited.

 

The AAA adopts a holistic approach to teaching advertising, design and marketing, incorporating the challenges of new technology and media. Our ties to the industry ensure students are given live briefs to work on. Working in agency-simulated teams, allows them to integrate theory with practice and hit the ground running once they graduate.

 

Qualifying students get the following benefits:

 

  • Free Adobe CC 1-year licenses to creative students.
  • First time students who register for a full qualification will receive a FREE Proline Voyager Laptop [14 Inch Screen, Windows 10 and 2.4Ghz processor]
  • Each laptop comes complete with Microsoft Office 365 and a nationwide 1-year warranty.
