Collarts

Australia
Overview

Overview

Collarts (Australian College of the Arts) is an independent higher education college in Melbourne, focused on preparing students for creative industries. With 30 years of experience in providing dynamic education, Collarts offers industry-based teaching in areas including fashion, comedy, music production, interior design, audio engineering and more.

Courses are taught by industry experts who have worked with some of the world's top music acts and have gained experience in producing and recording award-winning albums. Members of staff include Academy Award nominees and ARIA award winners, providing students with the expertise and skills they need to break into the creative industries.

Collarts has amazing facilities, including recording studios, post production studios, auditoriums, materials library, mac labs, pc labs and the latest surround sound technology, Dolby Atmos.

Students are also given the opportunity to gain work experience in entertainment and creative industries including music festivals, radio stations, fashion shows, conferences and many more.

The college operates on a trimester schedule, having the year split into three study periods known as trimesters. Owing to this structure, students can graduate from their bachelor's degree in two years of study. Students are also given support to improve their academic skills and wellbeing.

Voted one of the most livable cities in the world (The Economist Intelligence Unit's 2019 Global Livability Index), students can take advantage of Melbourne's reputation as a hub for creativity, diversity and culture. The school is spread across four campuses, ideally located in the vibrant artistic area of Fitzroy and Collingwood. Australia itself is one of the top study destinations for international students, with a high quality of life, great cultural events and a world-leading higher education system.

Students speak

Listen to what students have to say!

''Collarts is located in the best spot for the music and entertainment industry. In the Collingwood and Fitztroy area, you can find plenty of nice music venues with live performances and the best is that there is something for every taste.'' Sara Lina Nielsen/ Collarts Music Performance Student

''Collarts has been an amazing journey for me. The support and encouragement that I have received from staff and students alike is rare and unlike any other community that I have been a part of. I am never discouraged whenever I share crazy ideas.'' Sarah Baradhi /Collarts Audio Engineering Student

''What I love the most about my course and Collarts is how much I have improved my skills and the progress I have made since I started. The environment is very encouraging and makes me work harder, as I am constantly surrounded by amazing talented people who take music seriously and share the same passion as me.'' Jeronimo Sanchez/Collarts Music Performance Student
