HINTS AND TIPS FOR YOUR APPLICATION:
Although the degree is offered through Flinders University, we work in a strong partnership with CDW Studios. You will always have CDW options in your template.
Write the CV and do not worry if there is not much in it. We do not expect you to have worked in industry.
Make certain that you submit your portfolio, we cannot consider your application if you do not submit the portfolio. Put your best work in the portfolio, don’t worry if you do not have the maximum number of pieces. Some will have more, some less. Give us somewhere between 5 – 20 pieces of your work. Do not give us original item of work — send us photocopies, original ideas are welcome. Do not be afraid to try to get in, we are looking at many aspects of your work.
Always put the degree that you most want to get into first in your ranking, then at ranking 2 or 3 put in a degree that you are confident that you will get into.

For those who do not get an ATAR of 60, we have a strong pathway with Game Art at TAFE SA, we also have a Foundation Program. Contact Admissions at Flinders if you need advice on alternate pathways.
You can register for classes as a private student. This means that you would be signing up to do unaccredited training and would be hoping to improve your portfolio. Because CDW is a private school, we are not a registered training organisation (RTO), we cannot give out accreditation so this is not recognised for a student Visa. Students may be able to study at CDW Studios on a 90 day tourist visa, but since the classes are actually longer than 90 days, being able to stay in Australia for the duration of the course may be difficult.
If you take the option to study as a private student, our courses are purely focused on foundation skill training and portfolio development. You would be able to do as many courses as you can manage. Our foundation courses are open to everyone to apply to, but our advanced courses require a portfolio in order to do them. This should feature 5 – 20 pieces of your most recent work showing us what you would like to focus on.
In general, a job referral is something that must be earned through hard work, strong portfolio, and showing great professional attitude in day to day behaviour.
