This program is only available for domestic students. International students, please see the entry requirements for more information.

The Creative Innovators’ Program gives you a world-class design education, including hands-on project and research experience, genuine work experience, and an enriching overseas study exchange.

The Program is built around the Bachelor of Design, and enables you to develop a diverse and adaptable design skill set, becoming a design leader in framing and tackling global challenges in a wide range of contexts. Graduates of this degree have the skills, knowledge and experience to step into roles in both established and emerging creative industries, or pursue their own entrepreneurial activities.

Your core design knowledge crosses industries and technical skillsets, and enables you to adapt to the ever-evolving design industry. Combined with the significant industry experience, networking opportunities, and range of technical skills you can choose from, you can be prepared to apply your design skills and creative knowledge wherever your interests take you.

Industry leading facilities and technology

Our buildings are part of your creative journey, with award-winning and inspiring environments located in the heart of Tasmania’s cultural precincts at Hobart’s former IXL jam factory in Hunter Street, and Launceston’s historic Western Railway Yard at Inveresk.

Flexible studios and teaching spaces offer creative environments for interactive learning, while state-of the-art workshops are equipped with a full spectrum of manufacturing technologies ranging from traditional fabrication equipment, kilns and printing presses to Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) routers, laser cutters, 3D printers, and a Kuka 6-axis industrial robotic arm.

Our computer labs comprise dedicated Mac and Windows PCs, and include a wide range of industry standard software for graphic design, digital fabrication and Augmented and Virtual Reality, including Rhino 6 3D, Fologram, ArchiCAD, Revit, and the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite. Students are supported to fast track their digital design skills at their own pace with hundreds of online, e-learning tutorials provided through our Institute of Digital Design Australia subscription .

Inspiring environments for learning and practice

Your learning environment extends well beyond the classroom, and encompasses the wonderful state of Tasmania itself. Environmental and social sustainability is at the core of everything we do, and so you can draw on and be inspired by our World Heritage landscapes, and unique, multi-skilled and accessible creative industry sector that embraces our island state. All facilitated by our collective teaching expertise across the disciplines of Architecture, Design, Fine Art, ICT, and Business.

Overseas study experiences

Summer Research Program

The Summer Research Program is a great way to follow a passion, put your learning into practice, and set yourself apart for your future career. You conduct a six-to-eight-week research program on a topic of your choice during the summer, typically between your second and third year. To help, we give you a guaranteed $3,000 to assist with costs!

You have the advantage of working in some of Australia's best facilities, with access to leading researchers in whatever field of study you're interested in. This may become a pre-cursor to postgraduate study, or a great experience to add to your CV; either way it's putting you ahead when it comes to starting your career.

Work-integrated learning is embedded throughout your studies

From engaging directly with leading designers, industry and communities in the design studio, to placements in a wide range of industries on the ‘Design Island’ of Tasmania. Some of our existing and recent partnerships include the MONA FOMA and Dark MOFO festivals, Junction Festival, and Parks and Wildlife Tasmania, as well as local governments, education departments and not-for-profit organisations.

Our staff are heavily integrated throughout the vibrant and dynamic Tasmanian creative sector and beyond, offering you opportunities to gain exposure to a diversity of genuine work integrated learning opportunities.

The world is constantly evolving, with designers always pushing the boundaries of what is known, and finding creative solutions to complex problems across a range of industries and contexts.

This program prepares you a wide range of future careers in this ever-changing work environment. This means your career opportunities are vast, including within industries that didn’t exist when you started your degree!

When you graduate, you will be able to launch your career in both established and emerging creative industries such as:

  • exhibition design and event design
  • graphic and interpretation design
  • furniture, industrial and wearables design,
  • digital media design, interaction design and user experience design

Course structure

Core units focus on the development of transferable design skills in complex problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity and their application in design studios addressing real-world challenges and opportunities (50% of the course in first and second year and 75% of the course in third year).

You can select one or two design minors from the following:

Business and Entrepreneurship (Hobart and Launceston)

Make an early start on developing your professional knowledge and skills and applying your creativity to key areas of business: management, people and organisations, marketing and innovation. Business and Entrepreneurship offers opportunities of future careers as an embedded creative in multiple organisations and industries by applying your creativity to key areas of business including management, people and organisations, marketing and innovation.

Visual Communication (Hobart only)

Engage your creativity in the multi-disciplinary practice of visual communication and develop a repertoire of visual skills and approaches. Visual Communication provides you with the knowledge and skills to pursue careers in traditional fields such as graphic design, as well as emerging areas of interpretation design and creative direction.

Spatial design (Launceston only)

Focus on an exciting range of spatial design practices encompassing knowledge and skills from the fields of architecture, interior, landscape and urban design. Spatial Design provides you with knowledge and skills to pursue careers in areas like exhibition design, event design, and work in emerging areas like the design and fabrication of pop-ups.

Object design (Hobart and Launceston)

Pursue your passion for hands-on making and material exploration while developing skills and knowledge in craft and digital fabrication processes. Object Design draws on the expertise of the University in the craft of making, including both traditional and digital fabrication, to pursue careers in areas such as furniture design, industrial design and the design of wearable objects

Creative Technology (Hobart and Launceston)

Combine your creativity and your interests in gaming, coding and technologies that enhance human experience, through design. Creative Technology offers the opportunity for you to pursue careers in web design, game design and new fields such as interaction design through combining creative thinking with knowledge of coding and advanced technologies.

You may also choose to continue your studies with an Honours year (offered based on academic performance), to further develop specialised skills in key areas of interest related to the research strengths of the University, or as a pathway into Higher Degree Research.

Bachelor of Philosophy

The Bachelor of Design and Summer Research Program all contribute to the requirements for the Bachelor of Philosophy.
