RED Academy students are highly motivated and goal-oriented. They know that the key to success is in their own hands. We provide the tools, but our students provide the drive and determination to create their futures. Our school environment is a work environment – think of your time here as an internship. It’s fast-paced, professional and thriving. We want our students to arrive at school everyday with a strong work ethic to produce high-quality work. If you’re not afraid of hard work and you’re up for a challenge, then you’ll fit right in.
I chose the full-time Digital Marketing Professional Program because I didn’t have a marketing background to help me start a career as a digital marketer. I wanted to be taught by industry professionals to build the fundamental skills and knowledge to confidently call myself a digital marketer. The open-space and tech vibe of the school was exactly the environment I wanted to be in.

Our classes are made up of carefully selected students. Class sizes are small, so we strive to only admit students that fit our unique culture. No prior knowledge is required for our courses, but we do consider previous experience and/or a strong interest in your area of study an asset during the admission process. We operate on a rolling admission system, which means we select students who meet our criteria up until the class is full or the registration deadline.

RED suggests applying for a student line of credit from your bank, which can be a low-interest option for a loan. There are also great companies such as Lendful, a Vancouver-based lending company that can provide short-term loans. We are also able to set up payment plans upon acceptance into one of our programs that are based on your financial situation. Speak directly with Admissions for more information on any of these options!
