About the Institute of Education, Arts and Community

Our Institute offers qualifications from associate degree through to postgraduate in humanities and social sciences, community and human services, visual and performing arts, early childhood, primary and secondary education, vocational education and training and enabling education. Our programs operate from campuses at Mt Helen, Gippsland, Berwick, Camp St and Horsham in partnership with community education providers and schools across Victoria, interstate and internationally.

Our academic and professional staff in the Institute are deeply committed to excellence in teaching and learning.

We also achieve the highest level of excellence in research that has a reach nationally and internationally and makes a difference to the communities we serve.

We are a vibrant learning community with outstanding lecturers and researchers. Our contemporary curriculum is typically delivered through ‘blended’ mode, combining high quality online learning with face-to-face seminars, tutorials, workshops and studio practice.

Our students have access to high quality teaching in a personalised learning environment. There are many opportunities for work placement, internships, major projects, professional experience and excursions. As a result, our graduates enjoy the best employment outcomes in Australia.

We are proud of our contribution to the University's 5 Star Award for Teaching.
