Why study Creative Industries at QUT as an international student?

We are a world leader in teaching and research for creative practice, communication and design and host a diverse cohort making up hundreds of students representing more than 30 countries each year.

As the world’s first dedicated Creative Industries Faculty and the first in an Australian university, we are in a unique position to deliver programs at the forefront of the creative economy.

Creative industries graduates are not limited to working infields such as media and communications, design or the creative and performing arts. As the the demand for creative skills rises, our alumni are bringing creativity into industries like IT, finance, tourism and mining.
