Due to the current unprecedented circumstances and its impact upon year 12 students studying in Australia, AIT has adjusted its domestic entry requirements. AIT is removing the requirements to complete year 12 for applicants currently enrolled in their final year of schooling. Applicants will need to provide a copy of their year 11 and 12 results to date, letter of endorsement from their school, and complete a short screening questionnaire.

VTAC HELP for Students

Navigating the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) system can seem a little tricky, so we’ve put together our ultimate guide to VTAC for VCE students. You will also find a range of resources through the VTAC website, including the VTAC Year 12 Guide, with step by step instructions for researching and applying for tertiary courses.

AIT offers a range of higher education courses for creative students. You are not required to have an ATAR ranking, submit a portfolio, or sit an interview for entry into AIT.

If you want to turn your ideas into a creative career that you’ll love, then you could study a Bachelor of Interactive Media with a focus on 2D Animation, 3D Design, Film and Video, Game Design or a Bachelor of Information Technology specialising in Mobile App Development, or Games Programming. Your qualifications will be nationally recognised, but perhaps even more importantly, you will receive an education that gets you industry-ready. From day one you will start to work with the best industry tools, and to build a portfolio that showcases mastery of your craft. You will meet and receive feedback from industry professionals, and have the opportunity to complete an internship to help launch your career.

If you are interested in studying at AIT, and you haven’t registered and paid for a VTAC account yet, then you can apply to AIT directly. You’ll receive confirmation that you have been accepted to your chosen course sooner (before Year 12 results are released, depending on the timing of your application), and you won’t have to pay VTAC application fees. If you have already signed up for a VTAC account, then you can use this guide to help you navigate the system.
