Important Message

The University is committed to ongoing excellence in visual arts education and research, and the options being explored at present seek to achieve this in a way that preserves SCA's distinctive qualities. Applications will open for our updated Bachelor of Visual Arts degree, Postgraduate and Higher Degree research programs for students commencing from 2018.

The University is continuing to consult with staff on the future shape and structure of SCA (pursuant to The University of Sydney Enterprise Agreement 2013-2017). The current proposal is that SCA become part of the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and relocate to Camperdown/Darlington campus.
