Why study at the University of Melbourne?

Collaborate with directors, actors, designers, composers and other artists in an intensive, studio-based practice.

Led by expert industry professionals with strong industry connections.

We offer state-of-the art facilities in the heart of Melbourne’s Arts Precinct.

An arts career always has its challenges and for those of us in film and TV we have definitely seen those challenges this year. But I think it’s the urge to tell stories that keep us in the industry – and I find hearing different people’s perspectives and stories very inspiring, particularly as making television is so collaborative.
