Trimester 1 and Trimester 2
If you receive an OP 1-6 or equivalent and meet subject prerequisites, you are guaranteed a place in this program.
This program is scheduled to commence in 2019.
The Bachelor of Creative Industries is designed to attract students with the aspiration for non-performer career outcomes. Graduates will be ready for the workforce with a combined skillset in their own practice and in all aspects of the design, launch and running of a business. Positioned as an interdisciplinary future focused program, an entrepreneurial mindset will be instilled from the outset to engage and challenge students in the practice and business of the creative arts. Bringing together the performing arts and technical production elements, the program will be embedded in the local context of living arts and building creative communities and underpinned with managed areas of creative collaboration across existing schools in the Arts, Education and Law Group. The program will connect with the community and drive creative collaboration through industry partnerships.
You can choose from the following majors:
The Bachelor of Creative Industries may be undertaken full-time or part-time at the Gold Coast campus. As a full-time student, you will generally attend 12-15 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the trimester. As a part-time student, you will generally attend 6-8 hours of scheduled classes per week.
Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week.
From 2017, to be classed as a full-time student, you are required to enrol in a minimum number of credit points each standard study period. The minimum credit points for full-time enrolment in this program is 30 credit points.
Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 are deemed standard study periods. As Trimester 3 is a non-standard study period, continuing students moving from one year to the next will not be required to study during this trimester to be eligible for student income support.
Domestic students who commence in Trimester 3 may be eligible for student income support from the onset of study provided they are enrolled full-time in this study period.
