INDUSTRY CONNECTED LECTURERS
Students are guided through their studies by a network of committed academic professionals. Our lecturers are highly experienced, well-connected, accomplished and above all passionate about equipping their students with everything they need for success.
PREPARING STUDENTS FOR THE WORKFORCE
Beyond the stream of real and exciting work opportunities that often arise throughout the course of study, all students graduate with a professional portfolio of their work suitable for future employment interviews.
Staged at popular venues, Music and Audio students gain experience by playing, performing, mixing and recording to live audiences.
Film, Animation and Game Design students in turn, enjoy the opportunity to exhibit their work in both private and public spaces.
Entertainment Business students are responsible for the marketing and coordination of many of these opportunities.
Our unique program enables students from all departments to work together on collaborative projects, providing them with a diverse opportunity in which to apply their skills.
Students are able to access a range of effective support systems including orientation, mentoring, counselling and academic assistance programs.
Our curriculum is developed with a focus on emerging industry trends and leadership skills. Many of our courses were the first in Australia to receive formal accreditation.
Lecturer to Student Ratios
Accessibility to lecturers and equipment is essential for an optimum learning experience. Class sizes rarely exceed 25 students to ensure every student receives the attention and learning outcomes expected. In practical classes however, the ratio could be as low as 4 students to 1 teacher.
ACTING, FILM MAKING AND LIVE PRODUCTION
Through the acquisition of the Academy of Film, Theatre & Television (AFTT). Certificate and Diploma courses are now available in Screen & Media of Acting, Film and Stage Management. Alumni such as Firass Dirani (‘Underbelly: The Golden Mile’) have achieved notoriety in award winning productions. JMC Academy students, particularly those based in Sydney, are now able to collaborate with a cast of exceptionally talented actors throughout their studies.
