Swinburne promotes its programs by emphasising their flexibility – one of the key aspects of the course design.

RMIT has a first class reputation internationally and is widely known as a leading research institution. The university really excels in Design and Technology, but RMIT also has a QS university ranking in the world’s top 100 universities for Communication and Media studies, Computer Science and Information Systems – so your Masters degree will be very well set-up and resourced, with great connections to industry.

Next we’ll have a look at an alternative direction for students committed to creative technologies. RMIT offers the following program:

Master of Creative Media (Animation and Interactive Media)



Course overview About the program


The Master of Creative Media (Animation and Interactive Media) aims to develop your understanding of how to coordinate different media as powerful tools for exploring and expressing your ideas; the focus is on time-based media. Crucially, students work with narrative and interactivity, and skills are also developed through experimentation.



What does this mean for your studies? In year one your studies will include Concept Development and Storytelling. You will complete units is Collaborative Studio Practice before working alone in Individual Studio Practice, and the year ends with a final Major Project.


You will have a special interest in:

  • • storytelling, time-based media, creative writing and developing narratives


  • • you’ll analyse stories by looking at them critically


  • • you’ll develop ways of telling the story using your medium



Towards the end of your first year you will work independently, but first you will do group-work (Collaborative Studio practice) with these aims:


  • • getting practical experience of team-based production methods


  • • collaborative work is common in this industry, so you will want to develop as a good communicator in creative contexts


  • • you will need to adapt your ideas according to group-input


What do you need to enter this program?


You need IELTS 6.5 to enter the program. There is another test of your English skills because as shown above, one of your study focuses will be storytelling and RMIT expects applicants to demonstrate some Creative Writing skills as an entry requirement. This is part of a special pre-selection package for applicants. In addition, you’ll need a folio showing a range of your creative work in different media, and be ready to show 3-Dimensional Computer Generated Imagery if you want to specialise in this area.
