- Melbourne VIC Australia
Throughout our 30-year history as an education provider, Collarts (formerly AusMusic) has gained a reputation for delivering high quality, tertiary education, with a distinct ability to always be at the forefront of contemporary culture. Our commitment to industry connection, agility, and cultural relevance makes it a popular choice for students wanting the best start to a real career in the creative industry.
Being an independent tertiary college allows Collarts to offer a more specialised experience than a traditional university. Students are taught by industry leaders who have collectively worked with the world’s best music acts, produced and recorded award-winning albums, managed some of Australia’s best-known events, and created editorial and creative content for some of the world’s leading media outlets.
By offering a hands-on, collaborative approach to learning, our college strives to support those who want to succeed in the creative and entertainment industries, both nationally and internationally. Throughout their education, students are given opportunities to gain work experience at music festivals, entertainment venues, recording facilities, radio stations, and with brands and organisations at the forefront of contemporary culture. As part of each degree, students also undertake a comprehensive work placement.

For eligible Australian citizens, course fees at Collarts are supported by the Australian government’s FEE-HELP scheme. FEE-HELP is the independent college equivalent of the more widely known HECS scheme. For students, this means no upfront tuition fees, and as with HECS, re-payments for tuition fees are made slowly through the tax system — but only after surpassing a certain salary threshold.
