Employers choose us

The end-of-year student exhibition is an industry event where employers look to recruit new talent to join their design teams. The design industry offers internships and scholarships, and students have involvement both on and off campus in career development opportunities. Companies often consult our teachers for recommendations of students for employment.

Enmore Talks

Enmore Talks are regular industry-focussed presentations which aim to entertain, inform and engage students in the design profession. Enmore Talks are advertised through the DCE events calendar and on campus.


We recognise the significance of access to good education. Everyone deserves the opportunity to build their future, and that’s why we offer a range of scholarships.

Each scholarship provides financial assistance to allow students to focus more effectively on their studies. The Scholarship Program is supported by a range of valued partners – who see the worth in assisting our graduates – and by Sydney TAFE.
