Part Student, All Professional
When you’re enrolled at RED Academy, you’re much more than a student. You’re a budding professional, and we treat you like one. Thanks to our agency-style setting, you’ll learn first-hand what it’s like to be part of this fast-paced, exciting, and thriving digital industry.
From strategy to design to pitching clients, our industry-leading instructors will teach you all of the essentials to ensure you’re boardroom ready. And we don’t just stop at technical knowledge. We also teach the soft skills you’ll need to be a great employee, coworker, and leader, through and through.
So what does it take to get in? Simple: a positive attitude, an open mind, and a thirst for learning. Leave the rest to us.
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.

One of the first things you may notice once you step inside our doors is the ratio of students to instructors. We keep our class sizes small to ensure each person is given the one-on-one attention they need to thrive.
Our adaptable and supportive curriculum means that you don’t need to have prior digital knowledge in your chosen field. However, if you do have some previous experience or a strong interest in your area of study, definitely let us know so we can recommend the best RED path to take.

Our Application Process
Step 1 - Online Application Form
Fill out the registration form online for the course of your choice.
Step 2 - English Test
If English is your second language, we may require you to submit English test results. You must be able to demonstrate a professional working level of spoken and written English for the Canadian job market.
Step 3 - Interview
Let’s chat! Depending on your area of interest, we may require you to attend either an in-person or video conference interview with our admissions team. This meet-and-greet is also beneficial for our students, as it gives them the opportunity to ask any questions, connect with their instructor, and learn more about the curriculum.
Step 4 - Program Assignment
If you don’t have previous experience, we may require you to complete an assignment or test just to gauge your current skill level. This informal project will help us ensure you’re in the classes that best suit your technical knowledge.
