School of Creative Arts and Media

Tasmania might be small, but it’s got a creative arts scene that other places can only dream of. And when you study with the University of Tasmania, you’ll become a part of our bustling island’s creative revolution.

Do you want to be immersed in creativity, performance, design and innovation? There’s never been a better time, or place, to realise your creative potential than right now in Tasmania.

The University of Tasmania’s vibrant creative community brings together students, staff, researchers, and industry across Fine Arts, Design, Media, Music, and Theatre and Performance.

Our undergraduate courses give you opportunities to work on real briefs and projects with left-of-centre festivals, world-class museums, and cultural institutions which have put Tasmania on the world stage, and to engage with the acclaimed international artists, performers and creatives drawn here.

You’ll be mentored by approachable teachers who happen to be some of Tasmania’s most exceptional creative talent, while experimenting and collaborating with students from all walks of life. And it all happens inside inspiring campuses made for making.

Graduate with work-ready skills and knowledge, a portfolio of genuine projects, and a professional network to make a future that matters.
