Tips for folio

The folio provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate your skills, aptitude, passion and motivation to undertake a creative course and your interest in photography.

Be selective and think about the work you chose

Pick out your best 10 to 15 images and then think about why they are your best and what you love about them and the ideas and inspirations behind them.

At PSC we don’t use your ATAR score as a basis for entry. What is the entrance requirement?

You don’t have to wait to receive your ATAR score to know if you will be offered a place at PSC!

Simply attend an interview and present your folio. We will let you know via the A B or C letter of conditional offer.

(You must meet minimum tertiary entrance requirements - successful completion of VCE including Units 3 & 4 of English or equivalent and attend an interview including presentation of folio. (The Advanced Diploma accepts VCAL).

Frequently asked questions

What is being looked for in the folio?
We want you to see your creative potential not perfection! We want you to show us what you are capable of - so your capacity to experiment, explore – remember it’s just a sample of your work and you have the opportunity to discuss and tell us about your work and your back up ideas. We want to find out about your interests, your creative passions, and inspirations.

What’s the interview like?
This is your opportunity to tell us about your dreams, your motivations, what inspires you… tell us why you’ve always wanted to pursue a creative course. The interview is not panel based but personal and informal usually one on one and gives you the opportunity to discuss and answer questions about your folio and interests, motivation for further study and how you express your creativity. You get a chance to ask questions about the course as well!

What do I need to do to apply?
You must apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) AND directly to PSC using the PSC online full time course application form via our website.
