Karl Von Busse Institute of Design

Introduction

…ABOUT US

The Karl von Busse Institute of Design is an exclusive Boutique Design College based in Sydney’s CBD that is industry-driven and Internationally-minded; a more agile and truly unique design education provider.

Focusing on the main design disciplines: Fashion, Graphic and Interior Design, local and international industry professionals share their insight and experience with students in a studio environment on a daily basis.

Student intake is selective and class sizes are purposely small to maximise lecturer contact, ensuring that students, local and international, can fulfil their creative potential and get the mentorship they need to be industry-ready.

"What we are doing here is based on my thirty years experience, and that says to me to have a small group of people and prepare them for employment...There needs to be a central mentorship. There needs to be someone to know their students and see their weaknesses and support, and the more students you have the more difficult it becomes. That’s why I want our college to remain relatively small…The numbers in our college have a purpose. We want to get to know our students and support them for 1-2 years."
Karl von Busse
