Research at the Victorian College of the Arts is characterised by a spirit of enquiry, collaboration, and a willingness to cross disciplinary boundaries. The VCA's practice-led research and creative outputs explore the tension between traditional and experimental approaches to research.

An exciting range of research programs are offered at the VCA, part of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music at the University of Melbourne. Our graduate research covers diverse areas such as aesthetic and philosophical enquiry in the visual arts, the translation of specialist knowledge about the body in dance and voice, technical innovation in areas such as animation and production design, choreography and theatre practice, experimental practices in contemporary cultural production, and the exploration of innovative digital media and mediating technologies in the context of new art forms.
