Why Oakfields College?

Oakfields College has come a long way since opening our first campus in Pretoria in 2006.

We realised after just a few years of running our courses at the Pretoria campus that there was also a strong demand for our courses in Johannesburg and the East Rand, leading us to opening a campus in Edenvale.  A large part of our success has been built on the fact that our courses are extremely practical and our lecturers are experienced industry professionals.

Oakfields College offers individual attention and the different faculties integrate with each other in order to simulate real life experiences in class.  For instance, our public relations and event management students organise the fashion show for our fashion students; our graphic design and animation courses students design the art work and posters and our students pursuing sound engineering training manage the sound and lighting for the show.  Our make-up and special effects students will also be involved with the make-up for the models, whilst the photography and film students will ensure that there are great photos/film to catch and record the highlights! Oakfields College is also known as one of the best creative arts colleges in South Africa, providing in-demand courses like animation courses, film-making courses and many more. So, pursue creative training now and conquer the world with your skills.

Lidel Lombaard - Make-Up
'It has been challenging in an exciting way. Everyone was friendly but always pushed me to succeed, while campus was a nice place to be. I learned a lot inside and outside the classrooms. Where the positive energy drove me to work hard while having a bit of fun. It's a place that will be sorely missed.'

Njabulo Khumalo - Sound Engineering
'I was able to see my photography develop from start to finish. At Oakfields College you are able to express yourself. You are you and nobody can change that.'
