We understand the importance of freedom, so you can create your own unique journey by choosing from one of our specialist creative arts and visual arts degrees.
On campus you will study in modern facilities like art studios, galleries, sound and video production studios, and multimedia facilities. And off-campus you’ll get hands-on experience with our work integrated learning program, allowing you to connect your studies with practice through industry placements, professional experience and internships.
As a graduate, you will be ready to work in a range of fields including drama, creative writing, graphic design, literature, media, music, visual arts and more.
If you don’t meet the state-based requirements for entry into your degree, you still have options. There are lots of ways into ACU. Explore our pathways to get started.

Luckily, we offer a range of scholarships to commencing and continuing students. They recognise everything from rewarding academic achievement to supporting equality. And with nearly 400 scholarships on offer, and the opportunity to apply for as many as you like, it pays to check your eligibility.
We believe great work that makes a positive impact should be recognised – and rewarded. So if you are regularly volunteering, we invite you to apply for our Community Achiever Program (CAP). If you are accepted into the program, you’ll receive an offer into an undergraduate degree as early as August. And you’ll become part of ACU’s CAP community.
