Arts and creativity in education

We believe in the power of creativity

Complex real-world problems demand fresh, vibrant and innovative solutions. We train our graduates to harness their own creativity and activate those of their students.

Our educators celebrate, nurture and share creativity. As a leader in arts and creativity in education, the Sydney School of Education and Social Work at the University of Sydney strives to make an impact through industry engagement and specialised field work.
