The Interview

To enrol in many of our courses, you must participate in an interview with one of our instructors. Don’t be nervous! We are not judging your artwork, we are trying to get an idea of where you are at in your art making career so that we can give you the best instruction possible.

Sometimes applicants don’t get in. This is usually because the portfolio requirements listed above are not met, or they have not completed the prerequisites. Be prepared!

You do not need to make an appointment for an interview. Come down to the Bealart department on one of our interview nights and sign up for a time. Applicants are interviewed first come, first served.
