About Oxygen College

About Oxygen College

Oxygen College is a registered training organisation that offers nationally accredited qualifications in Music Performance and Composition, Photography, Sound Production, Video Production, and Visual Arts (painting & drawing).

With a history in education dating back to 1985, Oxygen offers courses that are designed to cater for all levels of age and ability. From part-time beginner programs designed to develop hobbies and passions all the way up to full time Advanced Diploma programs aimed at preparing students for a career in their chosen field. Our commitment to inspiring, developing, and supporting artists has seen Oxygen lead the way in creative arts education.

 

Industry Consultation

Courses are subject to a thorough process of industry consultation and scrutiny to ensure that the knowledge and experiences gained are designed by the industry, for the industry, meaning that all students are being educated in ‘real-world’ skills that directly apply to career opportunities.

 

Facility

When designing the facility, our mantra was to build a creative arts training hub that was unique in many ways. The facility needed to be state-of-the-art and industry standard, but more importantly we needed to have a low student to facility ratio to ensure students have access to studios, equipment and training staff.

 

Philosophy

We have made it our mission to provide the highest quality of creative arts education and services. We are committed to providing creative artists with all the tools necessary for the best start to a long and successful career in their chosen industries.

The focused and boutique nature of Oxygen allows our trainers to provide individually tailored opportunities for our students. Our mission of supporting and nurturing the personal goals of every student has created a network of staff and industry professionals dedicated to inspiring and assisting in any way possible.
