How to apply

Honours year

Applicants to Design (Honours) are required to submit a folio and draft research proposal, and to attend an interview in early December where your submissions will be reviewed and feedback provided. Applicants will have a further opportunity to finalise their research proposal after the interview. A final approved research proposal must be submitted prior to your offer being accepted.

Shortlisted applicants to Fine Art (Honours), will be invited to an interview. Interview dates will be confirmed in the second half of 2021 for 2022 entry.

About the Bachelor of Fine Art digital folio and written statement

After you enter your course preferences in VTAC, you need to submit a folio and written statement - submission is now open for entry in 2022, and the deadline is Friday 3 December 2021. There is no interview requirement for entry in 2022.

If you are applying for more than one Fine Art course (for example, you are applying for the Bachelor of Fine Art AND a double degree which includes Fine Art), you only need to submit ONE folio and ONE written statement.

Digital folio: You will need to submit 10-15 images of your artwork in one PowerPoint file, using the template provided. What you choose to submit is up to you! Works such as paintings or sculptures should be photographed clearly. You may also wish to include pages from your journal, showing progression of works from ideas to completion.

Written statement: Domestic and onshore students will need to submit a short written statement (300 words) as part of your application - there is a slide provided for this in the PowerPoint template file. In your statement you will be asked to engage in the analysis of an artwork you have seen, explaining how this has influenced your own making of art.

International applicants do not need to submit a written statement – they only need to submit a digital folio.
