    The experience

    Overview

    Travelling studios

    Travelling studios are ‘working laboratories’ for design thought and production. You’ll explore complex, real-life issues and devise solutions by collaborating with students from MSD and other universities. Exposure to unfamiliar cultures, places and people will stimulate your ability to think creatively and problem-solve. Travelling studios are a great way to bond with fellow students and forge international relationships. And they give you fantastic experience for your CV.

    Previous countries include Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Germany, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Mexico, The Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand and USA.

    The Melbourne Model

    Not all of our architecture graduates complete an architecture major in their bachelor degree before starting our masters program. Meet Ariani Anwar, currently employed at John Wardle Architects. She recently completed her Masters of Architecture, following a Bachelor of Arts in Art History and Hispanic Cultural Studies from the University of Melbourne. She is a founding editor of Inflection, the internationally published student-run journal of the Melbourne School of Design.

    Vocational Placements

    This program offers students the opportunity to undertake a vocational placement or internship as part of their masters degree.

    Also known as Experiential Learning or Work Integrated Learning, these placements provide a valuable way to gain first-hand understanding of professional practice.

    MSD Vocational Placement is a subject that enables eligible students to undertake an unpaid, short term placement with a host organisation or industry that is relevant to the student’s area of study. Students are allocated an academic supervisor and a host supervisor prior to starting the placement. These two roles provide students an important source of support throughout the placement and the ensuing report is submitted for academic credit.
