ABOUT OPEN WINDOW INSTITUTE
Open Window Institute (OWI) is an established private higher education institution known for setting the benchmark within the field of visual arts and digital sciences. Founded in 1994 with the focus on providing a unique tertiary platform where practice-led tuition links traditional fine arts with the applied arts. Emphasis placed on being market leaders has always inspired ongoing innovation to curricula, and this is a special consideration of rapidly evolving creative arts industries.
This has ensured that OWI’s product offering is inclusive of disciplines like visual communication, film arts, animation, game design and interaction design. Twenty years of creative excellence in the visual arts have resulted from maintaining high academic standards, ensuring that curricula remain progressive and by developing/fostering close professional contact with local advertising, film production and branding related industries.
Considering the applied nature of our areas of expertise, smaller classes are presented in order to ensure personal student attention at all times. Many of our lecturers in addition to their academic roles are also actively engaged in creative practice as designers, artists, illustrators and photographers. This investment in highly qualified and industry relevant staff serves to direct our students in contemporary work-integrated learning projects. This approach has been proven a success by our high graduate student employment track record.
