Tell us about UniSA. The University of South Australia’s School of Creative Industries breathes creative endeavour and innovation – it’s at the heart of everything we do. We have been educating tomorrow’s creative leaders for more than 25 years, delivering graduates with the skills and knowledge to launch their careers in their chosen field. 

How are UniSA courses unique? We offer qualifications and experiences that combine creativity with business insight and technology. Our students are learning in creative and challenging environments informed by research and industry. They are offered unique opportunities where they are on first name terms with some of Australia’s most prominent industry executives, significantly increasing their career prospects.

How do Uni SA classes differ from other classes of their kind?Our Graduate Certificate in Film and Television is an intensive, full-time qualification featuring a series of lectures, tutorials, case studies and hands-on work. Our students work alongside industry creative’s from Matchbox Pictures to research, develop and produce a short form film (documentary or drama) project for pitching to ABC iView. No other courses offer this kind of connection or opportunity. 

What skills do you teach specific to your industry? Our graduates of the Film and Television qualification are a handful of graduates in Australia with a practical, hands-on understanding of, and experience in the film and television industry. They learn how production companies pitch, produce and create screen content, providing them with technical and practical skills to transition straight into their careers in film and television.

The University of South Australia’s Graduate Certificate in Film and Television is a 12-week program offered through the School of Creative Industries. You can find out more about the course and the other programs on offer via the UniSA website: unisa.edu.au.
