“We have courses from the Cert III level, all the way through to Bachelor programs,” he said.
“For graduates of the diploma program, both music performance and sound production, if they successfully complete the diploma they can actually use that for a year’s credit towards our bachelor program, so they then can complete an entire bachelor degree in only two more years.”
The diploma-to-degree pathway allows students to complete both a diploma and bachelor degree in the time it usually takes to complete a degree alone.

Studying this way also allows students to put their diploma skills into practice in the music industry while completing their degree.
This really appealed to student Luke Houselander, with the talented musician now studying a Bachelor of Contemporary Music after completing a diploma.
“I decided to go into the Bachelor after my diploma so I could keep utilising the facilities, like the studios, and to also keep building on my network as well,” he told myGC.
“The teachers are all really professional, they are all real world artists, producers and sound engineers.”
Mr Crawford said students studying at TAFE Queensland’s Coomera creative campus have access to world-class facilities.
“We are very lucky, we have large-scale performance spaces, excellent studio facilities, and the great thing about working from the creative industries campus is we have the ability to work with other qualifications as well, so we work in with our screen and media team and our arts department with really holistic results,” he said.
