Study in Australia to become a sound engineer! For music enthusiasts, Study Experience has established a partnership with JMC Academy, a renowned school with campuses in Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne.
When it comes to creative passion!
Don't fight it!
JMC Academy opened its doors in 1982. Quickly, the school established itself as the only accredited private school for sound engineering and digital media. Today, although other institutions also offer programs in those subjects, JMC Academy remains a reference for sound engineers and audiovisual professionals. Alumni from JMC Academy have featured on the rolling credits of numerous world famous productions such as the animated film Happy Feet 2, or the video game Assassin’s Creed; some have worked with famous bands including John Butler Trio, or now occupy high responsibility jobs in great American TV channels such as HBO. Tuition fees are between AUD$16,000 and AUD$18,000 depending on the program chosen, which is very affordable compared to other institutions in Australia.
JMC Academy offers Bachelor’s degrees as well as undergraduate diplomas. Although the school’s specialty is in sound engineering, it offers a wide range of programs including Entertainment Business Management, Digital Film and Television Production, 3D animation, and songwriting.
It can be hard to choose between those three cities. As the capital, Sydney is certainly the most famous and it is the home of some of the biggest audiovisual media companies. Brisbane, the largest city in Queensland, is one of Australia’s main economic and technological hubs when it comes to communication and information. Melbourne is considered the cultural capital of Australia and it is the ideal location to study the Entertainment Business Management program. Students can transfer from one campus to another during their studies and therefore discover different cities.
The Sydney campus is in the heart of the city, across from the Powerhouse Museum and the Sydney Entertainment and Exhibition Centers. The Brisbane campus is just a few minutes away from Queensland Art Gallery and the Performing Arts Center. Finally, the Melbourne campus is located right in the historical center of the city, just a few steps away from the Arts district.
To join JMC Academy, students must apply at least six months in advance and must have obtained a minimum IELTS score of 6.0, in addition to providing their baccalaureate transcript, along with a personal statement and letters of recommendation. Students must also submit a portfolio or take an audition depending on the program they are applying to. Study Experience is a specialist in supporting and helping international students through the university application process.
