Queensland College of Art

Over the past 125 years, the Queensland College of Art has brought together some of the finest practitioners and academics in visual art and design and produced thousands of professional artists, designers, photographers and film-makers who have helped shape art and design culture in Queensland, Australia and internationally.

Many of their programs have an industry focus, and have been developed with the assistance of professional art and design bodies. They have a strong commitment to community partnerships and internationalisation. Students work with community organisations, business and government on a variety of projects throughout their programs. The business community supports students through scholarships, travel prizes and exhibitions. The college has received generous contributions from Philip Bacon Gallery, Dell, Mirvac, Motorline, Thiess and Art Galleries Schubert.

This support, and the assistance of Griffith International, help them to provide a rich array of international experiences for our students. Many students take up the chance to study in cities such as Los Angeles, Edinburgh or Alberta for a semester during their degree. These experiences are complemented by the strong international student enrolment here, which enriches the everyday experience of students during their studies.

The Queensland College of Art also values strong collaboration with South East Queensland schools and visual arts teaching professionals such as ATOM, QATA and Artworkers Alliance. The college also contributes to the GUESTS program, that allows year 12 students to sample university life, while simultaneously undertaking semester one or two of Year 12.

They offer a full range of undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees, including:
