At JMC we’re all about broadening your horizons and re-imagining creative and fun ways to expand your learning. Our presence extends beyond Australia through a network of international partners. From trimester-long exchanges with overseas institutions to short immersion tours as part of for-credit learning, there's an experience just waiting for you to explore.

International Tours

LA Music Tour

Spend two weeks immersed in Los Angeles, California USA; take workshops and collaborate on songwriting and performances at our institutional partner LA College of Music; get feedback on your songs from A&R executives and music supervisors; visit famous recording studios and music venues as you take in the music scene. Then return to JMC campuses to complete your unit with project-based work that you began in LA.

This unit is available to Music and Audio Bachelor degree students in trimesters 3 to 6.

Applications for the June 2023 tour have now closed.

Student Exchange Programs

Fontys Academy for the Creative Economy (Netherlands)

JMC Academy offers the opportunity for students to spend one trimester abroad at Fontys University Academy for the Creative Economy (ACE) in Tilburg, Netherlands. As part of the exchange, JMC Academy receives Fontys University ACE students in February each year.

The JMC exchange students study alongside others from around the world as they undertake subjects offered by the Fontys ACE. Students receive subject credits that are the equivalent of one full trimester of study. All subjects are delivered in English at the Tilburg campus.

This opportunity is open to Entertainment Management, Animation, Game Design, Design (Visual Communication) and Film and TV students who have completed at least two trimesters of study at JMC. Places are limited to three students per exchange.

TAI Artes (Spain)

JMC Academy Bachelor degree students may apply to spend one semester at Tai Artes in Madrid, Spain. As part of the exchange, JMC Academy may also receive Tai Artes students at any of our campuses.

Students will be enrolled in subjects relevant to their JMC degree and receive up to one trimester’s worth of subject credits. The best study pathway for each student will be decided on a case by case basis. This exchange is available to students enrolled in our Acting, Music Production, Film & TV or Audio Engineering degrees who have successfully completed at least two trimesters of study.

The courses are delivered in Spanish so a language assessment may be undertaken as part of the selection process. Students who have only basic Spanish proficiency might consider enrolling in full-time Spanish language studies in Spain prior to commencing an exchange at TAI Artes in a subsequent semester.
