About the Australian Film, Television and Radio
The Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS)
provides advanced training and development for the film,
television, digital media and radio industries. It was established
by the Australian Government in the 1970s with the aim of
strengthening the Australian film industry, and since then has
trained many of the country’s most talented screen industry
professionals, including multiple Academy Award winners and
nominees. The AFTRS campus is located in the eastern suburbs
of Sydney, in Moore Park, adjacent to Fox Studios.
Traditionally focusing on postgraduate study, AFTRS recently
expanded its course offerings to include the Bachelor of Arts
(Screen). The three-year course prepares graduates for the
dynamic and changing media landscape, and combines a focus
on storytelling and the history of film with a range of cross-
disciplinary electives. Students complete a set of core subjects in
the first year, before progressing to a combination of core and
elective studies. The school’s key goal is to foster and develop
collaborative and critical-thinking skills, along with global and
cultural awareness, creativity, entrepreneurship and a deep
knowledge of the screen arts industry.
