LOCAL STUDENT INFORMATION
Step 1: Application Process and Entry
An AFTT Application form may be completed and lodged directly to our Student Recruitment Advisor 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 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 Student Recruitment Advisor, 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 relevant.
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 (DVD, USB), online (YouTube, Vimeo etc.) 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 Student Recruitment Advisor 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 Advisor.
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).
STEP 6: VET STUDENT LOAN
Students who wish to apply for a VET Student Loan must indicate this choice in the Payment Method section (page 5) of the Letter of Offer. The Student Recruitment Advisor will make the application on the students behalf. The student will then receive an eCAF via email from the Department of Education and Training with further instructions on completing the application for the VET Student Loan.
