WIN Campus and Community
Wentworth Institute of Higher Education (WIN) is ideally located at 302 Elizabeth Street Surry Hills on the corner of Foveaux Street and right opposite Sydney’s Central Railway Station.
The Eastern Suburbs light rail as well as many buses are also in close proximity. The surrounding area is a busy creative business hub in Sydney with lots of people, restaurants, cafes and even hotels. The area is generally recognised as the creative hub of the city.
Wentworth Institute’s mission is to provide industry relevant and innovative higher education courses to address the learning needs of committed students and, in turn, the future needs of the businesses and industries in which they will contribute their values, skills and knowledge.
(TEQSA) and by the relevant professional bodies. All our courses were developed in close collaboration with
industry so that students can gain relevant and sought-after skills. Our courses are designed to lead to successful and fulfilling careers in various fields, both in Australia and in the global market place.
We are committed to providing a valuable educational experience in a friendly atmosphere, with student support for academic studies and personal issues so that every student has the opportunity to reach their potential.
through the provision of industry-relevant, innovative, quality higher education courses, Wentworth Institute aims to address the learning needs of committed students and, in turn, the future needs of the businesses and industries in which they will contribute their values, skills and knowledge.
WIN has vibrant and active bodies of students, staff, alumni and industry experts. Together these bodies make up the WIN Community. With students from across the world and programs in ELICOS, Vocational Education and Training (VET) as well as Higher Education degree courses, the WIN Community is diverse and vibrant.
In addition to their studies, our students participate in a range of social activities including parties, lunches and informal functions. These functions are organised by staff as well as the WIN Students’ Association. Our excellent library and student recreation areas provide inclusive and welcoming areas for students to discuss their studies and to meet new and old friends.
Our staff have both industry and teaching experience and utilise innovative teaching techniques to impart their extensive experience and to fully involve students in their learning experience. Our staff are also actively engaged in research, particularly as it relates to improving the student experience. For example, several staff are presently working on a research project investigating the key issues which affect the overall performance of students in their first semester of academic study.
As students graduate from our programs they join our growing group of Alumni. Each of our Alumni are WIN’s ambassadors in the wider community and are greatly valued by WIN. Alumni members are encouraged to remain in contact with staff at WIN. They receive an annual newsletter updating them on current activities at WIN. Alumni members are encouraged to submit short items on their current activities for inclusion in the newsletter.
WIN also has an Industry Engagement Consultative Committee. Made up of senior practitioners from the various industries in which our graduates will work, the committee ensures that each of our programs reflects contemporary requirements for successful employment in industry. The Committee is also working on the development of industry engaged learning projects to help ensure that our graduates demonstrate the competencies required by industry.
WIN’s higher education is overseen by an external body —a well-known and well-appointed group of individuals—the Board of Directors. Each of the Directors has extensive experience in management.
Students make their own paths through the academic opportunities that WIN offers and take advantage of a wide variety of educational possibilities across the institute to pursue a career that interests them. We would welcome the opportunity to provide the breadth and depth for our students to be well-placed in today’s world.

GREEN SCREEN ROOM
Green screens are used in digital filmmaking for special effects. The process isolates a single color, such as green, in an electronic image and using software to make that value transparent, allowing another image to show through the affected areas.
A complete green room such as WIN’s rather than just a green screen means filmmakers are not limited to close-up shots for their special effects but can shoot full body wide-shots and superimpose your subjects onto virtual backgrounds, place them over animated digital backdrops or transport them to an another planet.
WIN students utilise the Green Room during their Bachelor of Interactive Media studies to develop relevant industry skills and experience.
WIN’s motion capture facility is one of only a handful in Australia and the southern hemisphere. This facility significantly enhances the learning opportunities available to WIN students.
Markerless motion capture made by Organic Motion was developed to be the easiest-to-use, most cost-effective professional motion capture system available. Complicated calibrations and time-consuming setups associated with traditional marker-based motion capture systems are now a thing of the past. With our markerless motion capture system, 14 infrared cameras record an actor’s movements and apply them to a 3D animated character.
WIN’s motion capture facility allows students to create realistically and otherwise time-consuming character performances for games and animations. This enables WIN students to acquire and develop creative and industry relevant work skills as they proceed towards achieving a Bachelor of Interactive Media or through elective subjects taken within a Bachelor of Business.
