Interviews

Interviews are allocated for approximately 20 minutes each, which is usually sufficient time to present your best work and tell us how we can help you gain skills for the work you seek.

Interview Checklist:

When you attend your interview, please:

  • Bring evidence of existing skills; that is, examples of your creative work relevant to the course, such as video, 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 showreel including excerpts of your best work.
  • Bring a passport-style photograph of yourself for us to attach to the record of the 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 contact the Melbourne Polytechnic Screen and Media Unit on the number listed below for any information regarding the information sessions or interview.
