Tertiary & industry connections

The College has established Art and Technology Reference Groups with industry and tertiary education representatives to guide and support the development of programs to meet industry training needs, skills shortages and improve access to higher education for NCAT graduates.


As a vocational education provider, we seek to pave a steady path toward success in the arts for our graduating students. Our strong reputation across the performing arts, media, visual arts and design has resulted in close tertiary and industry links with advanced benefits for graduating students.

Structured Work Placements and recruitment opportunities have been secured with private enterprise.
