About us

We believe in the power of artistic mind – working together, we can effect change.

Professor Barry Conyngham, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music

As the proud home of the Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music is a dynamic institution. Whether you're planning to join us as a student, looking to work with us, or just want to visit, feel free to explore our work and our spaces.

When people come to our Faculty they are in a melting pot, not only of ideas, but of cultures and aesthetics. We feel this gives students the best chance to find out who they are and what they want to say. We want you to come and join us in this great adventure. It’ll be tough, exciting and ultimately one of the most wonderful times in your life.
