It is recommended that you find out as much as you can about the Melbourne Polytechnic course before your interview. The best way to do this is by attending an information session. There you will be able to view our state-of-the-art production facilities, meet staff and current students, view student work and gather valuable info on our course content, such as our specific industry focus and employment pathways.
There are loads of courses out there with the same name, yet these courses can vary greatly depending on the particular industry focus chosen by the institute. Melbourne Polytechnic is jobs focused and our primary aim is to equip students with skills that will help secure meaningful ongoing employment in the Television and Media industry. Real pay for real jobs – they still exist. Not all courses share this commitment. These information sessions are design to help you decide which course is best for you. It is important to ensure you know which course aligns most favourably with your intended career pathway.
Interviews are allocated for approximately 20 minutes each, which is usually a sufficient time to present you best work and tell us how we can help you gain skills for the work you seek.
When you attend your interview, please:
- Bring a printed copy of the Record of Interview form (page 4 of this document) with relevant areas completed.
- Bring evidence of existing skills; that is, examples of your work relevant to the course, such as video (DVD format preferred), photographs, graphics, storyboards, production documentation etc … Time is limited, so plan to present your best work ONLY, or showcase your editing skills by compiling a show reel including excerpts of your best work.
- Bring a passport-style photograph of yourself for us to attach to the record of interview. The photo is not used by any means in the selection criteria. It is simply to aid speedy applicant identification. This is useful, but not compulsory.
- Be on time (actually, be early!)
Please feel free to contact the Melbourne Polytechnic Screen and Media Unit on the number or email address listed below for any information regarding the Info Sessions, the interview, or anything else.
