How to apply & enrol at AFTT

Application & Entry



Step 1: Application Process and Entry

An AFTT Application form may be completed and lodged directly to our Student & Recruitment Advisors online. Click here to commence your application. 

Entry into AFTT is based on: 

  • A completed application form

  • Completion of a Higher School Certificate or Year 12 equivalent*, OR completion of an Australian Qualifications Framework Certificate IV or higher qualification (where the language of instruction is English)

  • An interview or an audition (for acting students)

  • Minimum age of 18 at Advanced Diploma course start however applications may be submitted from any age.

* If you do not hold a HSC Certificate or Year 12 equivalent please contact the Student Recruitment team to discuss alternatives.

Step 2: Interview

Once your application has been received by our recruitment advisory team, we will call you to arrange a suitable interview or audition time. The interview helps us get to know more about you, your career objectives and expectations of the course. 

For remote students or those unable to attend their interview in person, arrangements may be made to conduct the session over the phone or Skype as relevent.

Step 3: Audition

Acting applicants are required to attend an audition to demonstrate their aptitude for the course. Acting course applicants will receive an AFTT Audition Booklet to assist preparation. For regional or interstate applicants unable to attend in person, auditions can be submitted directly to recruitment staff via post (CD, DVD, USB), electronically or conducted via Skype. Read more about the Audition process here.

Step 4: Letter of Offer

Applicants will be notified of the interview/audition outcome and all successful applicants will be issued a Letter of Offer. The successful applicant must then send their acceptance to the recruitment team who will begin processing your enrolment.  

Step 5: Enrolment process 

After the signed letter of offer has been received, an enrolment pack will be sent to you. This should be completed and signed and returned to the student recruitment team.

Students under 18 years of age at the time of completing the enrolment documents must obtain a guarantee signature from a parent or guardian (applicants must be 18 at the start date of the program of study in order to be eligible).


Students who then wish to apply for VET Student Loan must complete an application form with AFTT. Once this is complete AFTT will contact the Government on your behalf and an eCaf will be sent to you via your supplied email address to complete the VET Student Loan application process.
