    Step 1 VTAC Application

    All domestic students apply for this course through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Applications close 5.00pm on Monday 30 September 2019.

    If you are a domestic student studying your final year of secondary school outside Australia, you still apply through VTAC and you must submit your final results, as soon as they are available, to VTAC. You can submit your application to VTAC before you get your final results.

    If you are applying to commence in second-year or later, you still need to apply through VTAC.

    If you are an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person, you may like to contact our Faculty’s Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development before proceeding. They can assist you with your application and provide you with additional information about your study options.

    Step 2 slideroom

    Once your course application is submitted through VTAC, you will be directed to complete and submit the Supplementary Application Form via SlideRoom. In addition to the VTAC application fee you will also need to pay an additional non-refundable administration fee of $US55 (payable via SlideRoom). Information will be provided in your VTAC application. You need to do this before the VTAC application closing date.

    Step 3 after the application closing date - selection project

    Applicants are required to complete a selection project by responding to a prescribed text. Applicants will then present their selection project as part of the interview process. For more information on project selection and admissions criteria relevant to your situation, see Auditions and interviews.
