The One Academy is a private institution of art and design with international accreditation and state awards. The founders of the academy, Tatsun Hoi and Veronika Ho, decided to open a university due to the lack of people with creative thinking: for the first 5 years, the academy was the most famous art university in Asia. Tatsun Hoi, who runs the academy to this day, is an honorary member of the Association of Young Businessmen of Malaysia and has the “Outstanding Young Malaysian” award.

The Academy consists of 8 schools:

  • Advertising and graphic design
  • Digital animation
  • Fine Arts
  • Artwork
  • Multimedia design
  • Interior Design
  • Clothing design
  • Visual Effects.

Students initially receive a general course, after which they choose a narrower focus. The Academy collaborates with the University of Hertfordshire (UK), providing students with the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree in humanities.

Graduates of The One Academy achieve great heights: among them are the creators of special effects for the films Avatar, The Incredible Hulk and other successful specialists in the field of design and graphics.
