Why AIM’s Post-Grad Program Is For You

postgrad study

The future of the industry.

Have you ever thought about taking your learning to the next level?

If you loved studying with AIM, perhaps now is the time to think about undertaking one of our industry-leading, practice-based postgraduate programs.

With the option to study a Postgraduate Certificate, a Postgraduate Diploma or a Master’s Degree in Music or Arts & Entertainment Management, you’ll be able to choose how much you want to study to reach the next stage of your professional development.

The Benefits of Further Learning

Postgraduate study can be a viable option for anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge, or explore specific areas of interest. It’s also a great way to improve your employment prospects and stand out in an extremely competitive industry.

Some people undertake post-graduate studies simply because there’s a subject they’re interested in – and they’d like to learn more. Many of us love the intellectual challenge of further study.

Others undertake a degree in order to gain higher academic qualifications, thereby opening up work opportunities such as teaching. Or you might use further studies as a means of changing career direction and moving into new areas.

Or you may have recognised that higher degree qualifications are good for career development, increasing the likelihood of a promotion. Many employers place great value on academic qualifications.

What You Can Study at AIM

Post-grad studies in Music will allow you to explore and broaden your creative practice with the help of AIM’s industry focused teaching staff. You’ll have the opportunity to collaborate across AIM’s inter-disciplinary music community, including the next generation of songwriters, musicians, producers and music industry professionals.


Our postgraduate music program will help you hone your existing skills and develop specialist expertise in areas such as film music, teaching techniques and audio production to enhance your music career.


Postgrad studies in Arts & Entertainment Management allow you to take the next step in your management career – or cross over from creative to management. With a focus on management skills for the entertainment industry including copyright and contract law, leadership and strategic planning, our Arts & Entertainment Management postgrad courses enable you to access and work with the wider AIM community including musicians, songwriters and producers.
