*Please note that it is not compulsory to attend these sessions to receive an offer for a major in Fine Art.


These sessions will be helpful if you:

  • would like to receive further information about Fine Art
  • are applying for a portfolio entry pathway to Fine Art at Curtin University
  • would like to discuss entry pathways to Fine Art at Curtin University.

What to bring

Bring what you have to show your interest and engagement in art. This will vary between applicants, for example some applicants may have more of an interest or knowledge in the arts and less of a practical portfolio.

Where possible your portfolio should reflect your ability to communicate through a variety of visual media and may contain a selection of your own work, which demonstrates your skills and strengths. Your work can be 2 dimensional and/or 3 dimensional in format, but for your ease of transport, please photograph large pieces that are difficult to bring to the advisory session.

Try to order the information you bring and be aware that your advisory session will be approximately fifteen minutes.

What to expect in the advisory session

You will be asked questions regarding the work you are presenting, as well as the artists, works and ideas that interest you. Try to order the information you bring and be aware that your interview will be approximately fifteen minutes.

Remember that the purpose of the advisory session is to provide you with advice on future study and to do this effectively it is helpful to have your work organised and presented in a thoughtful manner.
