    Step 1 apply through vtac

    All domestic students apply for this course through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Applications for start year 2019 are closed.

    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.
