Dean's welcome

Hello, and welcome to the Faculty of VCA and MCM. I believe we have the most exciting and rewarding task in the University: to enable students to engage in the practical arts at the very highest level.

Here you have the opportunity to master the creative disciplines of music, visual arts, performing arts and film within the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the Victorian College of the Arts, stimulated by the academic and research opportunities of a world-class university. You will do this in the midst of one of the most artistically vibrant cities in the world.

We believe that close interaction with teaching artists and working professionals in the studio combines well with courses that broaden your focus, preparing you for the full range of options in your future career.

In joining us you will be challenged and stretched, but will emerge equipped to take on your future and join our long list of graduates startling the world.
Professor Barry Conyngham AM
Dean, Faculty of VCA and MCM
