Why study at the University of Melbourne?

Experiment with concepts, materials, techniques, and processes in an immersive, studio and workshop-based environment.

Taught by professional working artists with strong industry connections.

We offer state-of-the art facilities in the Stables (our new architecturally designed facilities) in the heart of Melbourne’s Arts Precinct.

I came to the VCA with no expectations, but my time has been spacious, responsive, rigorous, and insightful. The conversations with my peers and mentors have been inspiring and I am so infinitely amazed at how present and supportive everyone is in every interaction with technicians, supervisors and lecturers.
