Why the Academy?

The International Academy of Wedding & Event Planning is a global leader in the area of wedding & event planning, styling & design education.  In fact, there is no other company offering wedding and event courses in the way we do.

We are the home of 6 online campuses in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, North America, the United Arab Emirates & South East Asia and we are proud of our 3000+ Graduates who are located around the world.  But the big difference between us and our competitors is not how many campuses we have.  No, the real point of difference is that when you study with the Academy you have access to course content that has been specifically designed for the region your campus is situated in. Of course, there are similarities between what each campus offers and you will see that the outlines of all of our courses are the same, regardless of which campus you study from, but working and doing business varies from country to country and we use our local, expert knowledge and networks to make sure that the course you take, prepares you for working in the region you are located in, as well as Internationally.  You will also receive local support and networking opportunities.  But our 6 online campuses and close industry ties worldwide means that you also benefit from our International connections and understanding of doing business around the world, which is great news for anyone wanting to pursue opportunities in other countries upon Graduation, or further on in their career.

What does all of this mean?  You can be confident that the course you take is preparing you for working, ‘where you are’, where-ever that may be in the world.

Supporting the Academy is an Advisory Board of over 30 internationally respected industry experts. Their role is to work with the Academy to ensure that the education Graduates receive prepares them for the real world of work they will be entering when they finish their courses. This is another benefit of studying with the Academy and something that really sets us apart from our competitors.

So, now that you know a little more about us and what makes us different from the ‘rest’, it is time to act.  Contact a Course Advisor, by selecting the campus nearest you from the list of ‘Wedding Academy Locations’ (see to your right, or below).  You can speak to a Course Advisor on the phone, via live chat, or send us an enquiry and we will get back to you.  Our Course Advisors are industry professionals, experienced wedding and event planners with their own businesses and many are also Academy Tutors. Their expertise will ensure you choose the right option for your career goals.
