As an educational college, PSC participates in the Australia wide Student Experience Survey (SES). Every year we have achieved outstanding results in overall student satisfaction, achieving some of the highest results for any college in Australia. PSC achieves this result by being compared to other Australian Universities in the Creative Arts industry. The SES scores not only rank the student experience, but also compares the teaching quality and learner engagement.

What our student say...

"I like that PSC is a small college. It’s not a gigantic campus and people get to know you –  you're not just an ID number. I find I learn better when I can more easily engage with my environment."

Jules Perrenot, France


- Masatoshi Kobayashi, Japan

"One of the main reasons I chose to study here was that the class sizes were not too big so I thought I could  get closer to the teachers. Also seeing all the students and staff winning awards made it even more attractive. "

- Rani Joensen, Faroe Islands

"The photo studio at PSC is the best! We have a massive cyclorama and numerous bays that can be configured into one large space."

- David CH Lai, Hong Kong
