The Creative Industries Campus (QACI) opened its purpose built campus located in the Creative Industries precinct at Kelvin Grove in Brisbane in 2007.
QACI students benefit from a unique partnership between Education Queensland and the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and in particular the dynamic and world-leading Creative Industries Faculty.
In this partnership, the state’s most talented and high performing students will be able to access an articulated route to tertiary studies at QUT which will allow them an early measured introduction to tertiary life that will better prepare them for what many young people consider to be the culture shock of the first year university experience.
Students graduating from QACI are well placed for careers in architecture, engineering, town planning, event management and, new media industries such as e-games, web development, software development and graphic design, as well as film, television, music, theatre and visual arts.
To obtain the benefits of powerful learning that can be achieved through the arts, the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries has developed a broad range of significant arts community and business relationships.
These include – The Edge (State Library of Queensland); The Block Gallery; NIDA; Zen Zen Zo; Carbon Media and the Queensland Writers Centre.
