2012 Mid-Year Applications- Now Open!


Fast-track your career into games and film

Applications for mid-year intake are now open for the following courses:

The mid-year intake enables students to complete the first year of the two year Advanced Diploma courses in six months. This is done by studying five days per week, 9am to 5pm, rather than the usual two and a half days per week. By the end of the year the mid-year intake group can commence year two study with the cohort that commenced year 1 study at the start of the year and resume normal two and a half days per week. 

This intensive mode for the part of the course means that students complete the Advanced Diploma over 18 months rather than two years.

The Next Steps

Entry to AIE courses is based on talent and passion. We determine through an interview with one of our teachers where we have a chat to you and have a look at your portfolio.

  1. To book an interview, download and complete an application form [PDF document]
  2. Application forms can be emailed or mailed back to the campus you would like to study at. 

Click here to find out more about the interview and portfolio.

We also encourage you to come along to our mid-year Open Day on Saturday 26th May 2012, from 10am to 3pm.
