Entry Criteria - Resource for Support
Below you will discover some useful resource, reference materials, instruction and tools to assist you during the entry and admissions process to CATC.
If you're preparing to enrol in either the Diploma of Graphic Design or the Diploma of Photo Imaging you are required to submit a set of creative works. if you're enrolling in the Diploma of Interior Design you have the option to submit creative works, however it is not compulsory.
To demonstrate your genuine passion for Graphic Design or Photography you'll need to submit examples of creative works (not required for entry to the Diploma of Interior Design). During the Admissions process your Course and Careers Advisor will support you through our step-by-step process for creative works submission. However, to prepare yourself before hand, we have pulled together some helpful resource to help you define and collate a set of creative works, as well as some instruction and tools to help you prepare your samples. Refer our Submission Guidelines .pdfs outlining the process which you can download here:
