What happens at the Interview?

AIE admission interviews are relaxed and informal. This is your chance to ask questions and demonstrate your interest, enthusiasm and potential to complete the program to a high standard. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour the campus and see our students in action. Common questions discussed in the interview relate to teamwork, educational history, what you want to gain from the program and your long-term career aspirations. During the interview you’ll also need to show examples for your work from your portfolio. We will assess which level of the course would best suit you and let you know if you need to submit further materials.

Come in for your interview or set-up a Skype interview with us to show us your portfolio of art, programming or design production work.  

After your interview, we’ll let you know if you are accepted, and send enrollment materials. Official transcripts ​will be required for enrollment.
