North Sydney campus

Brisbane campus

The APM Brisbane campus is situated in the cultural and business epicentre that is Fortitude Valley. Just minutes from the heart of Brisbane, the campus provides an excellent learning and work environment.

The modern campus was completely refurbished in October 2008 and now includes state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities as well as spacious student break out areas, student common rooms with FOXTEL, and outdoor alfresco deck areas.


APM offers both on-campus and online study options.

Students can study face-to-face at either our North Sydney or Brisbane campuses. This traditional face-to-face study method offers a high level of motivation and personal interaction preferred by some students. On-campus learning encourages interaction between students and lecturers.

APM also offers students the opportunity to study some of its nationally accredited programs via a flexible and online program meaning teaching and learning take place online rather than in a classroom. This allows for complete flexibility to study when and where you want. This study option meets the needs of students who regularly travel or live outside of the capital cities.
