Radio Offshore is an international media watchdog organisation based in Melbourne, Victoria. Founded in 2008 in the face of a continuous decrease in quality media, Radio Offshore frequently satirises 'patronising media', particularly focusing on televisual material - especially advertising. Radio Offshore has also parodied organisations such as the University of Melbourne, in protest of the demise of the Victorian College of the Arts.
Radio Offshore takes its name from pirate radio stations, often known as offshore radio stations due to their broadcast practice which involves anonymous signal output from a vessel in international waters. In particular, the Radio Offshore name pays tribute to Radio Caroline, which was one of many stations responsible for the broadcast of alternative media to the United Kingdom in the 1960s.

The School of Music has already been amalgamated with the University's music department as reflected in the College's recent rebranding as the V.C.A.M. while the Schools of Music Theatre and Puppetry (the only school of its kind in Australia) have seen their courses suspended from future student intake.
