Visual Arts Folio Requirements

Visual Arts


Your folio is your artistic fingerprint.

We would love to see your portfolio that demonstrates your ideas, concepts, approaches, mediums, skills and evidence of artistic ability. We're also looking out for your potential for further artistic growth. Make sure you include a minimum of ten works.

How to prepare:

  • Organise your work into a flat folio (rolled up work is not a good idea)
  • Separate your work into categories 
  • All work must be dry
  • Pastel/charcoal works must be fixed
  • If you have work that is too large to transport, bring in photographs with the dimensions labelled on the back
  • Digital folios are also acceptable. If you are presenting a digital folio you should preload it onto your own device with a sizeable screen such as a laptop.

On the day

  • When you arrive for your interview, you'll be met by our check in staff. Arrive in plenty of time, so you can find the right location, and you're not rushing.
  • In the interview, we'll look at your portfolio and ask you questions that relate to the conceptual and technical dimensions of the work. We might ask you about recent exhibitions you've seen, your favourite artists, what you know about the industry and what plans you have once you've completed the course. We understand you might be nervous in the interview, our staff are very approachable and are interested in learning more about your work and answering questions you might have.
  • We're looking for students who demonstrate a commitment and enthusiasm for the arts and their chosen area. Motivation and dedication are highly regarded.

Visit the Preston or Prahran Campus page for travel info or see the campus maps below. 

If you have any further questions after the interview, call the Visual Arts Department on 03 9269 1623 or 03 9269 1551 and we will be happy to answer your inquiry.

Good Luck! We look forward to seeing your work.
