Are you interested in a career in art and design?

AUT’s Art and Design Information Day is an event designed for students who intend to apply for Art and Design’s undergraduate programmes. This year, they are taking the event online on Thursday 9 July, allowing students to get all the information they need from the comfort of their home.

There will be two sessions throughout the day, with options specific to each major to choose from. Lecturers will give general information about the courses and will also advise on how to submit an electronic portfolio.

This event is for anybody interested in a Bachelor of Visual Arts which has pathways in Photography, Paint/Print and Sculpture, or our Bachelor of Design with majors in Communication Design, Interaction Design, Digital Design, Fashion Design, Industrial Design, or Spatial Design. It’s also an opportunity to find out more about their interdisciplinary minors.
