Early Conditional Offer Period for 2023 entry

Bachelor of Photography

At PSC we strongly believe that every student who loves creative pursuits should be given the opportunity to find their path to tertiary study, so we have made the decision to continue to implement our Early Conditional Offers for the 2023 intake. These ‘early offers’ ensure that admission to our degree is clear, supportive and provides a much-needed sense of certainty.

At PSC - Interview based, not ATAR

At PSC we do not use ATAR as any part of the admission criteria and base admission on an interview with examples of the student’s creative work and completion of Year 12. We also accept unscored VCE applications. Our informal and friendly interview and discussion allow us to provide a guarantee to students that they will be considered in a holistic and thoughtful way based on the whole person, allowing a focus on their personal and creative development.

To be eligible for a 2023 entry early conditional offer, students apply through VTAC. They need to start a VTAC account and preference the Bachelor of Photography Course in their preferences. PSC will then contact the student to arrange their interview. On successful completion, students will receive a Bachelor of Photography ‘Early Conditional Offer’ and a sense of certainty for the way ahead. (Formal offers require successful completion of Year 12 VCE or equivalent and will be made through VTAC & PSC in December 2022 as per the VTAC offer dates.)

PSC Transition to Tertiary Study - Support and Wellness Program

This year we have returned to onsite learning. There is, however, still the option for students to elect to undertake some of their subjects via real-time zoom if that helps facilitate their return to full on-campus learning. We have found so far that of our 50 current first-year students, only approx 2.5% elected to not return to on-campus classes and took the zoom option. This year we have placed a priority on our support programs to assist all cohorts, particularly the new first year students, in their transition to tertiary study. Our program includes:

  • The PSC Pals, our peer mentoring program, allows our 2nd and 3rd year students to assist our new 1st year students. They share their insights and encouragement, and provide a friendly face around campus as well as arrange social events, catch ups, lunches and informal get togethers.
  • We provide targeted support that includes study support, time management, literacy, study skills, organisational and learning support. There is an emphasis particularly strong this year on the transition to a tertiary environment and return to face-to-face learning, identifying where gaps might exist and increased student support and nurturing.
  • We have in place a very experienced First Year Coordinator Sarina Lirosi who has an ‘open-door drop-in’ approach with new students as they settle in and liaises closely with the PSC Pals.
  • Extensive wellness and student support program run by our Wellness & Support Coordinator.
  • Also, we are assisting our 2nd and 3rd year current students to return to onsite learning, through our supported learning programs and continued focus on the creative process as a tool for exploring and expressing what students have experienced over the last 2 years.
