On Saturday 8 August, we held our first-ever virtual Open Day, welcoming creatives from all over Australia and the world who joined us as we took a deep dive into the Bachelor of Arts Screen: Production. They got to know our lecturers, students and alumni, joined live chats and panel discussions, took a virtual campus tour, enjoyed work produced at the School, and got some tips on how to ace applications for the 2021 intake.

We also hosted drop-in sessions for those who missed our recent virtual Postgraduate Information Week, which covered all 10 disciplines offered in the Master of Arts Screen, the Master of Arts Screen: Business and Leadership and Graduate Diploma in Radio programs and can be viewed here.

To get up close and personal with the next generation of Australian creative talent, join a crew of current Bachelor of Arts Screen: Production students live on the AFTRS YouTube channel as they share their AFTRS experience and answer all of your burning questions on Saturday 17 October.
