    Frequently Ask Questions

    Do I need to know anything before I learn digital marketing at NEXT Academy?

    No. Our program was designed for beginners in mind.

    However, we do recommend that you should have at least a Facebook and/ or Instagram account for platform familiarity purposes.

    How are classes conducted in the Remote Immersive format?

    1. Lessons on the Learning Portal

    You will learn by accessing weekly lectures via our learning portal. Unlike typical 2-hour long lectures, our lectures are in the form of bite-sized videos to help maximize knowledge absorbtion and maintain your attention.

    2. Hands-on Learning

    We believe in hands-on learning. We encourage you to share your work with us and we will be happy to give you pointers and feedback!

    3. Monthly Learning Meet Up with the Instructor

    Every month there will be a meet up with the instructors to talk about different topics of marketing and strategies. Come by to the physical event or tune in live.

    4. Discussions with Your Peers

    Our online community portal gives you the chance to mingle with your peers. You won't be learning alone, and you'll definitely make new friends.

    Is this just an online course?

    Nope, this course offers more than just any other online courses.

    This course progresses on a weekly basis, you can follow through and learn the topics weekly by watching the lectures, and completing the exercises.

    Apart from that, we will be having monthly learning meet ups (onsite) where you get to learn and asking questions on various topics and strategies. This is a great time to meet new friends and interact with instructors and peers.

    Unlike online courses where you learn by yourself, you will get an immersive experience as you progress through the course.

    What do I need to prepare for the course?
    • A laptop with Google Chrome

    • A working credit/debit card (To activate your Facebook and Google Ads account).

    • A business idea that you would want to work on. Due to the nature of this Quantum Degree, we recommend that the learning is accompanied with a business idea.

      If you don't have a business idea yet, don't worry! You can use an existing business that your friends/ family are running as training grounds for digital marketing (with their permission, of course).


    What can I learn in 12 weeks? Is it enough?

    You should be dedicating around 10 hours per week. Quite often, people would take more time to complete the topics as the exercises would take considerable effort on your end.

    Do I need to spend money to run campaigns/ads during the Quantum Degree?

    To get real world experience in digital marketing, we encourage students to launch their own campaigns on various platforms like Google Adwords, Google Display Network, Facebook and Instagram Ads.

    When you run live campaigns, besides getting a better feel of how these platforms work, you'll also gain experience on analysing and optimising your campaigns. The amount spent on these platforms will be entirely dependent on your budget, and you can go as low as RM5/day for your campaign duration.

    We also understand that some students may feel uncomfortable with spending money to run live campaigns on these platforms, so it is optional (though we really encourage you to run live campaigns to get the most out of the course).

    Should I attend the monthly meet ups? What if I can't make it?

    Yes, you should! This is the time to meet the instructor and tap into the instructor's mind on various digital marketing strategies.

    You will be notified on the details of the monthly meet up sessions. If you can't make it physically, we will be broadcasting it LIVE and you can join us virtually.

    Do I get 1-on-1 mentorship with the instructor?

    You get to message instructors on the online community portal at anytime. During the monthly meet ups, you will get to ask questions and network too.

    Do I need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy?

    No, you don't need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy.

    What are the job prospects like for Digital Marketers? And how will NEXT Academy help me?

    In general, Digital Marketers are extremely in demand all over the world. There is currently a huge shortage of skilled digital marketers and this will continue for decades to come.

    NEXT Academy has links with many technology startups across the region and will attempt to connect its talented graduates with the best startups.

    Are Quantum Degrees recognized by employers?

    The Quantum Degree® is a qualification unique to NEXT Academy which applies to its various tech programs. To own the certificate is proof of your dedication to completing the comprehensive curriculum. Recognition of the Quantum Degree® among employers is also rising as more of our graduates set foot in the tech industry.

    Many of our past students come from unrelated industries, bearing zero tech knowledge, yet move on to be hired by companies such as AirAsia, Mindvalley, KFIT, Digi, and Grab, among many others. This is what the Quantum Degree® means to our graduates, and it can open similar doors for you as you set out to realize your own goals and ambitions.

    Will I be able to get a job after completing this Quantum Degree?

    Many of our graduates have gotten jobs as Digital Marketers upon completing the course. There is certainly a good amount of demand for individuals with digital marketing skills in the job market.

    While we are unable to guarantee job placement for our students, we do assist students in job seeking through our Connect job portal, a portal we built to connect high quality employers with our students.

    Is there a due date for enrolment?

    Start anytime you want. Just keep in mind what goal you want to achieve within the next 12 weeks.

    Is this course HRDF claimable?

    All our courses are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.

    How do I apply for the 0% monthly instalment plan?

    Malaysian Maybank Credit Card holders are eligible for the 12-month 0% monthly installment plan. This can be done online.

    Can I pay by cheque?

    Yes, we accept payment by cheque, you'll have to come to our office to make the payment.
