About the Bachelor of Fine Art digital folio and written statement

The deadline for folio and statement submission is Friday 4 December 2020. There is no interview requirement for entry in 2021.

If you are applying for more than one Fine Art course (for example, 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. 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.

You will have the option of submitting individual images, or one digital folio, or a link to an online folio, or a combination of any of these three options.

Written statement: Domestic and onshore students will need to submit a short written statement (300 words) as part of your application. In it, you should explain why you want to study Fine Art at Monash and engage your interest in art. International applicants do not need to submit a written statement – they only need to submit a digital folio.
