Research at the Faculty of VCA & MCM is youthful and vital, motivated by curiosity, courage and passion, and supported by a spirit of collaboration. A productive tension exists between tradition and experimental approaches to research, and between art based research and artistic research. Internationally and nationally acclaimed artists pursue practice-led research across a wide range of art forms, and internationally recognised scholars work across more traditional modes of research. Whether you are interested in coming to Melbourne as a student, graduate researcher, visitor or future colleague, we  offer a dynamic and youthful creative research culture in Australia’s premier research institution, The University of Melbourne.
