Curatorial Studies (CU017)The Graduate Certificate in Curatorial Studies is designed to assist you in the development of your career prospects in art galleries, museums and other cultural institutions. Curatorial Studies balances the study of art history with the study of collecting and curating from historical, contemporary and practice-based perspectives. You are exposed to the museum and gallery environment through gallery-based learning and ‘behind-the-scenes' site visits to cultural institutions, and, there are opportunities to undertake intensive study tours in artistic capitals such as Paris, Rome and China. A key component of the course is an internship in visual arts organisations where you will be supervised by professionals so that you can develop your curating skills in ‘real-life' situations. This invaluable workplace experience, coupled with your study of art history and curatorial practices, provides a unique opportunity for those seeking to broaden their base of practical and professional competencies.

Applicability of the Student Rules, policies and procedures
3.(1) The Student Rules apply to students in this course.
Academic Conduct Essentials, Communication and Research Skills And Indigenous Studies Essentials module
4.(1) Except as stated in (2), a student who enrols in an undergraduare degree course of the University for the first time irrespective of whether they have previously been enrolled in another course of the University, must undertake the Academic Conduct Essentials module (the ACE module), Communication and Research Skills (the CARS module) and Indigenous Studies Essentials (the ISE module) in the teaching period in which they are first enrolled.
(2) A student must successfully complete the ACE module within the first teaching period of their enrolment. Failure to complete the module within this timeframe will result in the student's unit results from this teaching period being withheld. These results will continue to be withheld until students avail themselves of a subsequent opportunity to achieve a passing grade in the ACE module. In the event that students complete units in subsequent teaching periods without completing the ACE module, these results will similarly be withheld. Students will not be permitted to submit late review or appeal applications regarding results which have been withheld for this reason and which they were unable to access in the normally permitted review period.
