University rank #201 (WUR) ,
This Bachelor of Entertainment Industries course offered at Queensland University of Technology is the first and only of its kind. Study the creative, industry and legal aspects of global entertainment and access work experience, hands-on projects and study trips


Entertainment is a global business characterized by constant change and transformation. The major film and television studios now compete against increasingly popular on-demand players, like Netflix and Stan. 

YouTube and Instagram produce their own slate of stars and celebrities, while the global popularity of eSports attracts the sort of revenue that makes headlines around the world. Australian pop stars take part in Eurovision, and the latest K-pop sensation springs up on Australian radio. Yet, despite the proliferation of entertainment industries and forms, the old adage still rings true: content is king. 

Real-world learning

Strong industry involvement is a key feature of the course from the very first year, which means you will benefit from expert, practical advice, original and engaging learning opportunities, and direct contact with leading media and entertainment professionals. In the final year, you will conduct a year-long project under direct consultation and mentorship from an industry partner.  Other opportunities for industry engagement include semester-long internships or international study excursions.  

Learn from the best

Your coursework, which is taught by leading industry researchers in the School of Communication, will equip you with the critical thinking skills and professional know-how necessary for a successful career in the media and entertainment industries. 

Studying this Bachelor of Entertainment Industries course offered at Queensland University of Technology you will learn different industry structures and functions; common professional roles and practices; how to manage individual talent and creative teams; how to identify, develop, and pitch creative ideas; changing sales and distribution models; transformations in audience behaviours and engagement techniques; basic legal principles; and the socio-cultural impact of different entertainment practices and forms
