    Arts Manager

    This course is available for on-campus study by students with an International student visa.
    This course structure contains information about the units which comprise the course as well as the credit points required to successfully complete it.

    The three year full-time course consists of twenty one units of study, plus six practicum.


    Students select four Elective Study units from a range offered by other Faculties. Students may claim exemptions from Elective Study units on the basis of other tertiary qualifications.


    The first two practicum units involve staffing Front of House for Academy productions. In practicum three and four, students take on the management roles of Front of House and are also encouraged to become involved in community and professional activites. In practicum five, students gain experience with professional companies.

    In the last semester, students undertake their final practicum as an Industry Placement, which is full-time for a period of ten weeks. This occurs with a professional arts organisation.

    This placement is designed to synthesise theory and practice and to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and skills acquisition over the previous five semesters. It also provides a transition period that is a practical preparation for the workforce.
