Study Opportunities and Experiences
Practice in inspiring and bespoke campuses
Learn in inspiring environments with world class studios and spaces that fuel your creativity: Hobart’s former IXL jam factory or Launceston’s historic Western Railway Yard, also home to our dedicated working theatre, The Annexe. Together with Music and Media’s state-of-the-art home at Hobart’s Hedberg, each campus puts you in the heart of Tasmania’s cultural precincts.
Engage with world-class creatives
Through our Artist in Residence, Arts Forum and masterclass programs, engage with acclaimed artists, performers and creatives commissioned by Mona, TMAG, QVMAG and other partners, members of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and more. Throughout your degree, be mentored by approachable teachers who happen to be some of Tasmania’s most exceptional creative talent.
Participate in left-of-centre festivals
The projects and collaborations you undertake, with partners like Mona Foma, Falls Festival, The Unconformity or Ten Days on the Island, allow you to graduate with work ready skills and knowledge, a portfolio of genuine projects, and a professional network to help start your future career. Become part of Tasmania’s intimate and internationally-recognised creative community.
Showcase your creativity
Experiment across studios, ensembles and disciplines through smaller class sizes, and receive individual attention to help develop and refine your creative practice. Take part in rich and varied exhibition and performance programs to showcase individual and group-generated work, as well as pursuing independent opportunities through a range of community and creative projects.
Scholarships and bursaries
As a student of the School of Creative Arts both the University and the School provide access to a variety of scholarships and bursaries at a University, College and Discipline level. The main application period begins in August, and closes on the 31st October the year prior to study commencing.
Art | Rosamond McCulloch Studio Residency, Paris
Each year, proposals are invited for artist studio residencies at the Rosamond McCulloch Studio. The residency is open to University of Tasmania visual arts graduates, with a preference for those who currently reside in Tasmania. There is also the opportunity to receive a stipend to help support your residency.
An overseas study program gives you the opportunity to experience different cultures, study languages, undertake work placement or internships, make new friends and explore the world while receiving credit toward your degree and creating professional and life experiences. It provides a 'total immersion' experience in a variety of study areas and locations. You can choose a program length that suits you, from a 2-week fieldtrip, a short-term summer program to a full semester (or two).
