The School of Creative Industries is committed to providing world-class teaching to all students. Our programs are designed to nurture the skills and talents of our students and much of this is done through practical learning. By providing students with access to industry-standard equipment and state-of-the-art facilities, we prepare them for diverse and successful careers.
Our students enjoy regular use of studio and recording spaces, performance and production facilities, laboratories, galleries and cutting-edge technology.
‘A stage within a city’ – Honeysuckle City Campus Development
The School of Creative Industries is building a creative and cultural presence at NeW Space, the University's landmark education precinct in the heart of Newcastle’s CBD.
Next door to NeW Space’s innovative teaching facilities is the recently refurbished, heritage-listed University House. Home to our design studios and equipped with the latest digital tools for creating pixel-perfect, professional-quality work, University House is where we enable the makers of today and tomorrow.
Also in the city precinct is a thriving undergraduate and community music program, with a packed schedule of contemporary performances, operating from the School’s Conservatorium of Music.
The next phase of our development is a space for experiences, information and learning not delineated by walls. A mix of arts, media, objects and wonder, our state-of-the-art innovation and creative industries building will provide additional studios and performance spaces for making extended, augmented and virtual reality work, alongside animation, game-art, film and television.
Completion of the precinct is set for late 2020, with teaching commencing from 2021.
