UNSW Art & Design offers the widest range of Art, Design, Digital Media, and Media Arts disciplines and dual degree opportunities of any art & design school in Australia.
Apply through UAC and boost your chances for late round admission by submitting a portfolio.
Intensive studio practice, individual and collaborative projects, technical training, industry and real-life problem solving are just some of the learning experiences shared by students at UNSW Art & Design. In our dynamic and industry connected programs you will explore the frontiers of creative practice through a balance of conceptual learning and hands-on making skills and techniques.
Limited places are available in the February Round 1 UAC round for single and dual degree programs in Fine Arts, Design, Media arts, and Art Theory.
Applicants have until the 27th January to apply or change their UAC preferences to be considered for the February Round 1 UAC round.
Applicants who have an ATAR (including adjustment factors) of at least 70 have the opportunity to submit a portfolio to boost their chances of receiving an offer. Portfolios can consist of a small sample of images, a URL link to your online portfolio or a short piece of written work. Submitting a portfolio is a simple process. You can submit your portfolio (in addition to your UAC application) online here.
When submitting your portfolio, keep in mind:
- Please remember that we are not expecting perfection. We are simply looking to see your creative potential as well as your willingness to learn and try new techniques.
- If you choose the option to submit images (no more than 6) for your portfolio they must be JPEGs, and the size of each image must be no more than 1500 pixels in either width or height. Helpful information on how to resize your photos for windows can be found here, or if you are using a mac here.
- When submitting your portfolio via the online form, please ensure that you first click the 'Save Draft' button to complete your portfolio. Once you have finished arranging your portfolio online and have clicked ’Save Draft,’ you can then press ‘I Agree, please accept my submission for review’ to complete the process of submitting your portfolio.
The deadline to submit a portfolio for the February Round 1 UAC Round is 27 January. More information on Portfolio Submission can be found here.
