About First Media Academy

First Media Academy (FMA) was established in 2013 as a subsidiary of First Media Design School, which focuses on encouraging lifelong learning and enhancing employability. With our group’s diverse involvement within the design industry, FMA continuously identifies and integrates the latest industry trends and in-demand skills into its portfolio of workshops. As of 2016, FMA has partnered with SkillsFuture Singapore to assist in the delivery of Design and Tech training workshops

With the aim to further enhance our trainees employability, FMA in 2017 partnered with Workforce Singapore (WSG) to launch the Professional Conversion Workshops for Designers. This workshop was designed to aid career switching via re-training in design and on-job-training workshops.

We aim to provide a holistic ethos in all our workshops, from modular Design workshops, to specialised UI/UX workshops to Creative Thinking and Business Innovation. At First Media Academy, we are committed to preparing our students to become highly-competent and highly-creative designers for the workplace of the future.
