You’re considered an International student if you are a citizen of a country other than Australia or New Zealand.
Our innovative contemporary art qualifications let you focus on an area of particular interest to you. You can choose to study ceramics, drawing, glass, jewellery and metal, new media arts, painting, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, and contemporary art history and theory.
As part of your studies we make sure you get lots of intensive studio time, with access to stimulating, custom-built studio spaces. You will be taught by practicing artists, researchers and acclaimed academics, and will learn in on-campus workshops and design studios.
You could also use your contemporary art qualification as a pathway to further study, for example combined with a Master of Teaching (Secondary) you can become a secondary art teacher.
