    Once You Graduate

    80% of PSC graduates who are available for employment are employed within four months of completing their course (Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching, 2018-19).

    Graduates of PSC are eligible to apply for full membership of the following Australian professional bodies: 

    • AIPP Australian Institute of Professional Photographers
    • MEAA Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance
    • NAVA National Association of Visual Art


    As the Victorian Government starts to reduce restrictions, PSC is now able to offer its mid-year courses either by face-to-face on campus OR in real-time via Zoom. The choice is yours!

    Whether you choose to study face-to-face OR in real-time via Zoom, all PSC students receive the same level of teacher guidance and support.

    Real World Involvement in Challenging Times

    To study photography in 2020 is to study in unprecedented times. All around the world, photographers, videographers and visual storytellers are capturing the images of our time.

    Learning in these new world conditions, means that you are adaptable and innovative, open to new experiences.

    With these thoughts in motion we have created a PSC COVID-19 Gallery that is open to the world community to contribute to. As a fellow lover of photography, we encourage you to participate.
