Institute of Education, Arts and Community (International)

We give you creative license

The Institute of Education, Arts & Community (IEAC) is all about helping others – to learn, to laugh, to get back on their feet. You’ll graduate with the skills to educate, support or entertain – essentially, to stand in front of an audience and enrich their lives. Our discipline areas might be ancient, but the curriculum – and the way we teach it – is anything but. There’s industry experience on offer, too. Being part of IEAC means you’ll won’t just get a qualification, you’ll be ready for the spotlight.

IEAC allows you to express yourself. IEAC is your institute.

Your compulsory International Orientation schedule

We want you to feel right at home here, so we're running an extra orientation day just for you. Yes, you do have to attend, but no, we won't make you eat Vegemite (unless you want to). During registration students will be allocated to a group (A or B) and given specific Orientation schedules (which will include an information session, free lunch and enrolment session). We'd love to see you at the general Mt Helen Orientation as well (see below).
