AIE is proud to announce!

Our FACULTY OF VISUAL DESIGN has moved over to our sister school Greenside Design Center (GDC), which is now the AIE Group’s centre for Design.

“AIE, Academic Institute of Excellence announces the recent acquisition of the Greenside Design Center. As AIE welcomes Greenside Design Center into the AIE group of companies, they believe that their expertise in design education will greatly contribute toward expanding both their product offerings. The much expected announcement came, in July 2019, after months of negotiation.”

GDC is an international renowned design school with 34 years of experience within the educational design industry.
