If making things look beautiful is your thing, this is the course for you. Use your flair for creativity, design, creative problem-solving and styling in Swinburne’s Diploma of Visual Merchandising.

Gain core skills in design elements and principles, digital content and styling, window styling, creative collaborations, hands-on prop building, concept design, and designing and applying signage.

And as the industry becomes increasingly digital, Swinburne students are well-prepared for roles in online spaces; acquiring the skills for content creation, brand development, and styling for web and social media.

Our Diploma of Visual Merchandising is created with industry, so you’ll be immersed in industry from the moment you start. You could be designing, styling and creating displays for major Australian brands – not to mention building a unique and accomplished portfolio and the connections to land your dream job. All before you even graduate.

Throughout the course, you’ll be encouraged to try on a range of industry roles to see how they fit, learning how to respond strategically to client briefs, and gain collaborative and presentation skills. Plus, gain the negotiation and business skills to give you that competitive edge in a growing field.
