POP Proudly presents: Campus Melbourne
Deutsche POP's creative network stretches all over the world. Did you know, for example, that there is an academy location in Melbourne, Australia? In this behind-the-scenes article, we introduce you to one of our most popular international locations. Read what our participants and colleagues have to say about the campus and how you too can have an international experience "down under".
United POP Melbourne - Down under since 2018
People have been teaching and learning together at the United POP Melbourne Academy since 2018. The Australian city is especially known for its thriving art and music scene. Many locals, but also many Inernationals from all countries are attracted to Melbourne, not only because of the beautiful surroundings and culture, but also because of the growing opportunities in the job market. Professional and practical preparation for the job market is one of the most important elements of an education at Deutsche POP / United POP.
At different levels and in different creative fields, participants at United POP Melbourne can expand their knowledge and further their professional training. In total, there are four different creative departments in Melbourne:
- Photography & Photo Imaging
- Screen & Media
- Music & Sound
- Creative Industries
The Australian education system differs from our European model. The colleagues in Melbourne offer so-called "qualifications", consisting of certificates or short courses, diploma training and advanced diploma training. Intakes take place three times a year. A complete overview of the courses offered can be found on the website of United POP Melbourne.

Why study abroad?
Studying abroad is a great experience that can not only help you achieve your academic goals, but also improve your overall world knowledge and social skills. You'll also work on your English skills and make international contacts and friends.
In addition to these benefits, the academy itself has a lot to offer: From fully equipped facilities to the relaxed atmosphere and professional instructors. Music & Sound participant Sarah sums up this aspect for us:
"I feel like everyone here is a friend and that the classes are for everyone. So if you don't understand something, the instructors just want to be there for you and help you however that works best, which I really appreciate."

If you want to study as an international at the academy in Melbourne, you must first obtain a visa - whether for a semester abroad or for your entire education. For this purpose, our colleagues in Melbourne work with a visa consultant. He or she can recommend the best visa for your stay and help you to apply for and obtain it.
