How to apply

Here at AIT, we care about your creativity, not your ATAR. If you’re a domestic student, then you can apply directly to AIT or via UAC and VTAC.  If you’re an international student, then our registered agent partners can help you to organise everything you’ll need for your AIT application and your application to study in Australia.  

Find out exactly what studying at AIT will cost, with our transparent list of student fees plus learn more about the generous scholarships for both international and domestic students. 

Industry-ready 2D Animation graduates

We take your professional preparation very seriously – and here are some of the meaningful ways we do it.

  • Skills That Matter
    • Industry-specific professional skills embedded within each subject during your 2D Animation studies.
    • Key employability skills build progressively throughout the program as you develop complex professional capabilities; e.g. first read and understand a brief, then later present completed projects to a panel of 2D Animation industry experts.
  • Professional Portfolio-building
    • You’ll learn animation techniques to complete real world animation project-based assessments that you can include in your professional portfolio on graduation.

    • Your diverse 2D animation portfolio will set you apart! You’ll have the opportunity to follow your own creative visions as well as follow set client briefs

  • Career support
    • We have dedicated staff with robust industry knowledge ready to help you plan your 2D animation career, guide you in the future direction of tech, help with your CV, level up your social media presence or where to find work.

Bachelor Course Industry-Ready Inclusions

The third and final year of all AIT courses will focus strongly on the fundamentals of preparing you for employment in the creative industry of your choice.

We’ll teach you what the industry is looking for and guide you in every aspect of transitioning from study to the workforce. We’ll ensure you’re equipped with the right soft skills, practical skills and practical experience you’ll need to succeed.

Our Learning Design Team

The basis of everything that happens in the tech and interactive media world is design – and it’s the same with education. When we built your 2D animation course, we ensured we had the best designers on the job. That is why we have done what so few providers have done; we have invested in an in-house Learning Design team, a group of highly qualified educators and designers, making your 2D animation course content engaging, accurate, current, intuitive and enjoyable.

Studying should feel seamless, and your focus should be on what you want to learn, not the tech functionality. We make sure this is apparent when you invest in AIT for your learning.
