Pathways to further study…


Numerous JMI graduates have moved on to post-graduate studies at other universities.  One popular pathway is to progress from JMI’s Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance, to studying a Graduate Diploma of Education at Griffith University or QUT or a Graduation Diploma of Music at UQ. These Graduate Diplomas are one-year courses that qualify you as an Instrumental Music Teacher or Classroom Music Teacher in a variety of school systems.
