About JMC Academy

The advantages of studying at JMC are seen over and again in the success of our graduates. We teach the critical level thinking that is inherent in the higher education curriculum with production-based, industry-responsive practical knowledge taught by industry professionals. And THAT is what leads to industry-ready graduates who will make it.

At JMC, it's all about exploring your passion, discovering a rewarding career and making a few life-long connections along the way. It's about helping you grow your skills, hone your creativity, and learn as much as you can about your chosen field so that you eventually land that job you’ve always dreamed of.

However, we also realise that study takes a while, and a lot of commitment. And that you’re creative. And clever. And that you like to think outside of the box. So, we’re also committed to providing you with a very unique and stimulating creative environment and style of learning that we know you'll enjoy.

For a start, we base ourselves in fun, inner-city locations. In Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, we’re close to great cafes, bars, galleries, museums and entertainment venues, so you can stay up-to-date, and connected to the things you love. We also stay current. Our technology and equipment is world-class. We have recording studios, sound studios, post-production suites, film and TV studios, and much, much more. This means that when you do enter the professional workforce, you’re able to hit the ground running.  

Perhaps most importantly, our people are talented, experienced industry professionals. You won’t find any stale, dull lecturers here. Our team is fresh, accomplished, and ready to give you the head start you need. Plus, we’re very big on collaboration. It’s how creative industries work. And it’s how we work. We encourage you to join forces with your peers - from within as well as outside of your own course - as much as possible, and to work together to achieve possibilities that haven't yet been imagined for the Creative Industries.  


Regardless of how talented you are, sometimes you need the right support in order to hone your skills, and drive a truly remarkable career. The most important thing at JMC is our students, and we're here to help you, with whatever you need. Our free counselling and academic assistance is here throughout your JMC journey, so you graduate smiling ear to ear. Our list of services is extensive and takes place in-class or in the form of one-on-one support.
