PSC Rated Number 1 in National Student Survey

Posted by Daniel Boetker-Smith on 18/05/2018 1:58:38 PM

It's official! PSC has been rated in the top three higher education institutions in Australia for ‘Overall Quality of Educational Experience’, and No.1 amongst visual arts institutions!  

PSC has just been acknowledged by the Australian Government’s Student Experience Survey (www.qilt.edu.au) as one of the national leaders in higher education. This detailed annual survey asks students to rate and comment on their College/University experience across multiple categories like ‘Teaching Quality’, ‘Learning Resources’, ‘Skills Development’ ‘Student Support’ and more.
 
The survey report just released hails PSC as a ‘site of best practice in the student experience which other institutions may learn from’!
 
PSC Managing Director Julie Moss said: “I am so proud of our talented staff who are all so committed to creating the best experience for our students. Students are rightly very discerning about their education. They know what works for them and what they need in order to have a high quality educational experience. Our students have spoken and given us the highest possible endorsement!”

Making a Life Changing Decision to Study Photography : Featuring Anne McCallum

Posted by Social Media on 03/08/2016 12:50:51 PM

"I live in the countryside, in a place called Nug Nug which is in the North East of Victoria. I’m currently doing my Advanced Diploma in photography at PSC – as I’ve always loved photography. For someone who has been telling her children that they can do anything they want to, I thought it was time I took up the opportunity to pursue my passion."

Anne McCallum is in her first year at PSC and is finally honing her creativity in the arts. She describes her inclination towards photography as something that was passed down to her by her mother who was a singing teacher and artist, and her father who ‘always had a camera in his hand’.

After years of working in a variety of industries such as nursing, hospitality and retail, Anne has recently been exploring her interest in visual communications and image making. As a result of her quest for finding an environment which would help develop her artistry, Anne researched schools in Victoria and visited PSC.

“I looked at a few places but just kept coming back to PSC. The atmosphere is so welcoming and friendly, that I felt inspired to jump into the deep end and take up full time studies here. Now that I’ve started, the tutors are very nurturing and they want you to do the best you can do.”

Despite having a busy lifestyle and being the mother of five, Anne listened to her heart and made a commitment of travelling down to Melbourne for her classes. The lifestyle of moving back and forth between places isn’t new to her. Ever since she left Scotland as a child to reside in Australia, she has been travelling all over the region which has made her extremely adaptive.

After her first semester at PSC, Anne has found a deep interest in still life photography. She enjoys trying out a range of lighting techniques, in natural environments and at the PSC studio.

"It’s been a very interesting semester and I have enjoyed a steep learning curve, as the course is very practical and challenging in a good way. The experience of learning here is so diverse, giving you a wide range of genres in photography to explore. The major lesson I’ve learnt is that it’s important to believe in yourself. I was initially worried about ‘not reaching the standards’, but I’ve overcome that since being here. I now feel like there’s nothing I can’t achieve."

Come to PSC Open Day and meet Anne, who will be happy to discuss her experience with you and offer you insights about studying photography. Anne and her husband currently host the Nug Nug Wah Homestead, which you can check out here, you can also follow Anne on her exciting Instagram channel @nug_nug_wah_homestead. Feel free to contact us and learn more about our full time options.

Kristina Valdez on Being a First Year Student and Entering the World of Photography

Posted by Social Media on 01/08/2016 1:53:44 PM

‘I love photography – it’s creative and every day is so different. I love capturing new sights, environments and travelling. Since being at PSC I’ve learnt so much about lighting, colour and composition, which has changed my outlook on the art and how we construct visuals.’

Kristina Valdez is in her 1st year of the Bachelor Program and is really enjoying her life as an emerging photographer. Coming from a high school that didn’t have any subjects or electives in photography, Kristina was not deterred from pursuing her passion. She built her folio from her visual communications class and went out of her way to develop an understanding of photography, to create a wonderful series of work that would catch the attention of teachers at PSC.

She met the course director of the college, Daniel Boetker Smith, and describes her interview as a ‘fun discussion about photography, with a friend’. Although Kristina wanted to join PSC to become a fashion photographer, after her interview and folio presentation Kristina got underway with her first semester assignments and discovered her love for landscape photography.

Image by Kristina Valdez

Kristina is so thrilled to have joined us, her family and friends were really supportive as they know she’ll lead a happy life doing what she loves. Her journey to PSC is also quite a fated one, as after enrolling she remembered visiting our city campus during an excursion when she was in year 9!

Be sure to follow Kristina's amazing Instagram channel @labuenavistaa and meet her at PSC Open Day on 14 August: http://psc.edu.au/openday/index.html.
