Media Global Engagement

The Department of Media acknowledges the importance of being globally connected.

Through increasing opportunities for you to study abroad, and the creation of formal research links with a range of international institutions and individuals, we are committed to maintaining a strong international profile and ensuring that you graduate with the necessary skills for entering a global media industry.

Japanese Media Cultures

The Media program gives you the opportunity to study Japanese media in Japan! In conjunction with Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, we offer a two-week international study-tour each winter. This course includes a mix of lectures, workshops, and excursions. It is a chance to experience the Japanese film and TV industries, as well as offering insights into media production, games cultures and Japanese culture more broadly. More information and images can be found here.

The Department of Media is pleased to offer this Japanese study tour. This is a two-week intensive July Winter School (with some preparatory classes in Adelaide). You’ll travel to Kyoto to explore media and popular culture in Japan through a mix of lectures, workshops, and excursions. You’ll get to experience the Japanese film and TV industries, as well as gain insights into media production, games cultures and Japanese culture more broadly.
This tour has been developed by the School of Humanities (Department of Media) in conjunction with the College of Image Arts and Sciences at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto. It takes place during Japan’s renowned Gion Festival, an exciting time to be in Kyoto.
Limited places are available in this course and a competitive entry process applies.
This course adds to the suite of international study options for you as a Media student, which includes Exchange Study at one of our partner universities or intensive courses offered through the Australian Institute for Mobility (AIM) Overseas program.
Further information and application details will be available through Global Learning and the Department of Media website.
