The School’s association with industry has resulted in the delivery of unique and innovative programs within the stream of Media Communication training and research.
Each program is regularly assessed by its own Program Advisory Committee, comprising of members from relevant industry bodies as well as teaching staff from the school. PACs deliver on program structure and regularly develop program content to reflect the changing nature of the media and communications industry.
In addition, the School’s Work Integrated Learning program sees industry play a key role in program development in addition to education, training and work experience.
Teaching staff are regularly recruited from industry with a section still involved with professional associations or industry advisory groups. Some continue to work in areas including linkage research and secondments.
The school also provides scholarship opportunities for students and a number of awards and exhibitions throughout the year.
