QUT Student Test

The Master of Creative Industries gave me the flexibility to design my study around the specific areas of animation that were of most interest to me. I had the opportunity to work with professional artists, musicians, creative writers and designers, which was great professional networking for my future goal of becoming an animator or creative director in multimedia and film..
