All three years of this course are available at Mildura, with major studies in painting, printmaking, photography, drawing and sculpture. The course develops students’ perceptual, conceptual and research skills in the areas of painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Applicants must satisfy the University’s normal entrance requirements, including a study score of at least 20 in units 3 and 4 of English, or equivalent. It is desirable for all applicants to have undertaken Studio Arts and/or Art. A Diploma of Arts, or equivalent approved qualification, will qualify individuals for entry to the degree course at a level determined by a selection committee. Mature-age students will be considered for admission by the selection committee. Applicants must attend an interview, which is conducted in late November, and submit a folio to an interview panel. A statutory declaration confirming that the work is that of the applicant must accompany the folio. The folio should demonstrate the applicant’s aptitude, creativity, sense of design and abilities in a range of media or in a specialist area. It should contain material relevant to the applicant’s proposed course of study including finished pieces and preparatory studies. Where possible, students should bring the original artwork but, where size is a constraint, photographs or electronic documentation will be considered. Facilities for visual art include extensive painting, printmaking, sculpture, drawing and photographic/digital media studios associated with darkrooms for black and white and colour production. There is access to studios during weekday evenings, at weekends and during semester breaks.
