Throughout our development our partnership with QUT has been fundamental. This has been for many reasons but fundamentally we share a likeminded approach to innovation and relevance in education. For QUT this is captured in their “a university for the real world”. Our version, of this same intent, is “learning environment of choice for the aspirational creative generation”.
Developing clever and creative students is the way of the future of our world. Richard Florida says in his book Rise of the Creative Class 2003, “If services and human capital are the focus of future economies (rather than material resources and land values) then creativity and innovation are core assets”.
Our partnership with QUT has realised many amazing learning opportunities and projects for our students and we are excited as their new Creative Industries Precinct develops. The IBCC program we have developed as a specialist honours program in film, in partnership with QUT is a world first and a model which schools around the world are copying and developing.
In June 2014 we finalised arrangements whereby QUT will provide advance credit towards specific courses if a student achieves a 5 or better in HL Film, Theatre or Visual Arts. This is a unique credit arrangement to QACI recognising the quality of the program we offer and the skills of students who graduate from these subjects.
Students can also receive advance credits should they wish to study undergraduate science and engineering degree programs for completing IB subjects such as Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics SL.
Details of these plus other arrangements are published in the QUT Advanced Standing Precedent List (ASPL) - Simply type QACI into the “Institution Name” field then click search and the following details will be returned:
