To apply to NCAT CREATE download an application form from the CREATE Page

You will need to apply directly to NCAT Folio Preparation, not through VTAC. Please note that we are however listed in the VTAC Guide. 

We accept applications from mid year onwards. On receiving your application we will contact you by mail, with an interview time. We interview students from August onwards. Some late interviews are held in late January/early February. Applications after December will be accepted, however only early applications can be guaranteed a place in the course.
You will be required to bring a folio of creative work to your interview (Some mature age students have minimal creative output to show at interview), which could include some evidence of drawing/design/art work or any other supplementary information you regard as creative. 
Applicants to this course MUST have satisfactorily completed the VCE/VCAL senior or if mature age, (Over 21) be able to display equivalency to VCE/VCAL Senior through experience. We understand that you may not have final VCE results on application but be aware that NCAT Folio Preparation course offers are provisional on you successfully gaining your VCE/VCAL Senior.
