AUT Art & Design Information Day

AUT’s Art & Design Information Day

Fri 16th July (during school holidays)

10:30 – 2:30

AUT’s Art & Design Information Day is designed for prospective students who intend to apply for AUT’s art and design undergraduate programmes. The event equips you with the information you need to submit your portfolio to meet admission requirements for the Bachelor of Visual Arts or the Bachelor of Design, and give general information about the courses.

Sessions on the day

This event has sessions covering AUT’s Bachelor of Visual Arts (which has pathways in Sculpture and Intermedia, Painting and Printmaking, Photography and Lens Based Media), and AUT’s Bachelor of Design (with majors in Communication Design, Digital Design, Fashion Design, Industrial Design, Interaction Design or Spatial Design). It is also the perfect opportunity for you to find out more about interdisciplinary minors.

There will be morning and afternoon sessions covering each major throughout the day.

Bring your portfolio

We encourage you to bring along your portfolios of work to this event (even if still under development) for feedback and guidance.
