The arts and creative industries

If you're a creative person and love to express yourself imaginatively, our courses can help develop your skills and teach you to apply them in the working world. We have excellent teaching facilities where you can use your creative flair, including an on-campus film studio, theatre, radio station, student newspaper and online student magazine. Our students are industry-ready when they graduate and many go on to achieve outstanding success in artistic and media careers.


We conduct a wide range of research that benefits the arts and creative industries in Australia and overseas.
