Please see the information below regarding recent and significant developments concerning the future of the SCA. The University will update this website when further information is available.
The University has signed a Heads of Agreement with the University of New South Wales (UNSW) involving Sydney College of the Arts (SCA) and UNSW Art and Design.
If negotiations with UNSW proceed, it is intended that from Semester 1 2017 all undergraduate SCA students and students enrolled in the Master of Contemporary Arts will have the choice either to transfer to a UNSW degree or to remain enrolled in a Sydney degree, but with units of study delivered at UNSW’s Paddington Campus. Appropriate arrangements will be made for postgraduate students.
All SCA students will have the option of graduating with a University of Sydney degree.
If negotiations with UNSW do not proceed, the University currently intends to bring the SCA to the Camperdown Campus as a school in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.
Late last year Chinese-Australian artist and Sydney College of the Arts lecturer Lindy Lee completed her biggest sculptural work yet, The Life of Stars, in China. Lindy Lee’s next big project is much closer to her home in Sydney.
