We offer individually tailored Bachelor Degree programs on all instruments and voices, as well as composition.


Class sizes are kept intentionally small, with the highest number of PhD staff of any institution in Australia. Our degrees are recognised and respected throughout the world with many career paths and employment options available upon graduation.

Flexible study options

At The Guild, all our courses can be delivered and assessed via distance learning, on campus, or a mixture of both.

Fees & scholarships 

The Guild offers an extensive range of fees paying options and scholarships.  


As a not-for-profit we are committed to a policy of Education for All and as such, we keep our fees as low as possible.  The degree can be done entirely online, which helps reduce the running costs associated with a large campus. 


Students still have access to our state of the art recording studios, practise rooms, concert area and all onsite amenities as required. 


FeeHelp is available to Permanent Residents and Citizens of Australia.  Speak to one of our advisers to find out more and help you access this service.

For all other students payment plans are available.

Your degree should cost no more than AUD $39,500.  This is part of our commitment to you!
