Visual merchandising plays a critical role in the culture and perception of a brand. Our visual merchandising programs can help you gain the skills to leverage your own success.

When you study visual merchandising, you’ll explore different display elements and principles, learn about design language and acquire techniques for product presentation. You’ll develop skills in prop construction, styling and working to an industry brief. 

In short, with a Swinburne visual merchandising course behind you, you’ll have the confidence and skills you need to succeed in the workplace.

    STUDENT SUCCESS

    Fashioning a career in Visual Merchandising

    Chloe Chilver earned her first big break when she was hired to create a window for well-known Armadale jeweller Nicole Fendel as part of her course (pictured). 

    “It was great to apply everything I have been learning at uni in real life and create an installation that many people will see just walking down High St, Armadale,” says Chloe.
