Supporting documentation

All applications require supporting documentation at the point of submission.

Requirements vary from course to course, so make sure you check what supporting documentation is required for your application using Course Search.

Proof of identity and citizenship

All direct applications require proof of your identity and citizenship. Different types of proof are acceptable depending on whether you are an Australian citizen, permanent resident or other type of citizen.

If you are an Australian citizen, proof may be one of the following:

  • if you were born before 20 August 1986 – Australian birth certificate or current Australian passport
  • if you were born after 20 August 1986 – current Australian passport or Australian citizenship certificate.

If you are a permanent resident (including humanitarian visa holders), you must provide a current passport showing permanent resident visa or permanent resident visa documents.

All other students (including international on-campus students) must provide a current passport (including visa) or, for asylum seekers and refugees, an ImmiCard.

Supporting documentation must be certified as a true and correct copy of the original. This can be done by the issuing body. You can also get documents certified by a person qualified to witness a statutory declaration, such as a police officer, chemist, doctor or an accountant.

Photocopies of previously certified documents are not acceptable.

Design portfolio guidelines

Students applying for entry into the first year of a bachelor degree in design or film and television are not required to present a portfolio or attend an interview, unless they are seeking exemptions.

Applicants seeking exemptions must submit examples of design work (a portfolio) or a showreel, as well as academic transcripts from previous university or other qualifications.

Local students must submit this documentation at the time of enrolment. International students must submit this documentation at the time of application.
