Information for Art Students

After Hours Access

If you wish to get after hours access to the computer labs (B202/B203), the darkroom, the video lab, the photography studio, the fabrication area, or the painting/drawing studios, please see Malavai at the Arts Administration office (C119) and complete an application form. You will be issued with a fob-key which allows you access to the building.

Please note: after hours access is not available for the machine shop, due to safety requirements. All students must be supervised at all times by the arts technician or other approved tutor when working in the machine shop.

Return of Student Work

All student work will be available for return or collection after ratification of results. Tutors will advise the relevant dates. Students are responsible for collecting and removing work from exhibitions and displays, unless otherwise negotiated.

Hireage of Equipment

The Faculty has a range of digital resources (cameras/tripods etc) available for students to borrow. Please see the Arts Technician if you wish to book these resources. A $50 bond applies and students will be required to complete an application and pay the fee at registry. If resources are returned in original order, the bond will be refunded to you by either cheque or direct credit into your bank account.

Print Allocations

A print allocation of $10 is given to all students on enrolment. Students enrolled in the arts programmes receive further funding due to assessment requirements. Additional allocations are made as follows for full-time students:

  • Diploma in Creative Technologies: $50 per year
  • Certificate in Arts and Design: $15 per year
  • Certificate in Digital Media and Design: $20 per 6 months

Full-time students will receive the additional funds which will be allocated to your computer account approximately four weeks after the programme has commenced. Additional printing credits can be loaded on your student card, at student expense, using cash/eftpos at the library.

Timetables

You can view the Art, Design and Media timetables here.

Each student is sent a printed copy of their timetable at the start of each semester. Printed copies are also available at the Arts Admin office (C119), and they are displayed on the noticeboards outside the Art Tutor Office (F Block).

Programme Regulations

A copy of the Programme Regulations is available from the Arts Administration office (C119).
