Sharen van Lill
Digital Marketing Manager at SwipeIX
FORMER DIGITAL MARKETING STUDENT
“Prestige Academy has a smaller student-to-lecturer ratio & that allowed me to gain the support & enrichment I needed. I experienced first-hand that the demand for individuals in the digital field was increasing, & with a BCom in Digital Marketing at Prestige, I was sure to have a better chance at finding employment after I finished studying.”

Micaela du Plessis
Junior Designer at MILK
FORMER VISUAL COMMUNICATION STUDENT
“I am grateful to Prestige Academy who made it possible to head into the industry without hesitation, obtaining all the necessary skills & knowledge in order to excel. We were taught by professional & experienced lecturers. All assignments were created in a way that you learned & practiced within time constraints. The best part was being able to focus on the practical aspects & being able to partake in exhibitions & workintegrated learning. Both of these contributed a lot to improve certain skill sets & provided a real sense of what’s to come after my studies.”
Marcus van Tiddens
Multimedia Developer at Succeed Group
FORMER WEB DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT STUDENT
“There is so much diversity at Prestige Academy & that really helps you get along with others. My lecturers would always tell me how crucial it is to not only understand what you do, but also how it affects what you don’t do. Today, I always make sure that I can do any given task with full confidence knowing that I will succeed. I am not driven by ambition, but knowledge. My favourite class was ASP.NET as .NET really established the fundamentals of programming really well.”
Event Manager at Val De Vie
FORMER EVENT MANAGEMENT STUDENT
The most beneficial thing I learned at Prestige Academy was having to receive the practical training, the work-integrated hours & the actual case studies. This has put everything into perspective for me. It wasn’t that different from the workplace. As an example, one of the practical exams included planning a wedding from start to finish, exploit my creativity by decorating tables & hiring all the required items. I’ve used it all!
Chief Operations Director at Ogilvy Namibia
FORMER BUSINESS MARKETING STUDENT
“There are many reasons why I chose to study at Prestige Academy. I loved the small family vibe, the culture is great, the premises are safe & clean, & the staff are friendly & welcoming. I had some of the best lecturers ever & I also never felt alone – if you didn’t understand something the lecturer would make a point to assist you until you aced it! The work-integrated learning in my final year of studies was a great experience & definitely a good eye-opener. The knowledge I gained was relevant to what the industry required.”
Studio Operations Manager at Edcon JHB
FORMER PHOTOGRAPHY STUDENT
“I oversee & run the photography studio producing the e-commerce content. I chose Prestige Academy due to the hands-on practical approach in photography, combined with other aspects such as the business opportunities surrounding the visual communication field. At Prestige Academy you are known by your name & not just a number, meaning you have the opportunity to ask questions & talk to lecturers about work.”
Stakeholder Coordinator at The Foschini Group (TFG)
FORMER BUSINESS MANAGEMENT STUDENT
“My time at Prestige Academy had to be one of the best times of my life. The most beneficial thing I have learned from my time at Prestige was that hard work pays off & through that I was able to obtain my BCom Business Management Degree. I apply that lesson to everything I do. This has allowed me to move up the corporate ladder on 3 occasions within a year at my current employer. As a Higher Education Institution, Prestige Academy was effective in delivering the skills that I required to be successful in my work. I was selected on the SRC which also helped me grow & become a great leader.”
