Student Application Form

Before completing this form, please ensure that you have read the Additional Student Application Form Information and the Payment Agreement Form





We recognize that students learn from work or life experience as well as through their study. As such, we recognise prior educational achievements gained by students and this basis we may grant a pass for subjects in our courses based on your previous learning experiences.

Your previous learning may have occurred through courses provided by professional bodies, voluntary associations, private enterprise, work or other forms of practical and life experience. Recognising your prior learning means that you may not have to re-learn skills and knowledge already gained. Students must provide evidence of prior learning or current competencies and this evidence may include (but is not limited to) certified copies of relevant Statements of Attainment of Certificates issued by another RTO under the Australian Qualifications Framework 2013, current resumes, position descriptions, employer reference relating to the student’s experience, performance appraisals, portfolio or photographs of previous work or a demonstration of your skills.

Due to the practical and integrated nature of our classes students may still be required to attend classes even though your prior learning or current competencies are recognised. While the Academy will endeavor to offer flexible training arrangements, students should also note that the practical & integrated nature of our classes means that the Academy may only be able to offer training at certain times and locations.

No discount to course fees is offered for recognition of prior learning or current competencies. Fees will apply for RPL, see Fee Schedule Payment form.

Students wishing to apply for RPL or RCC must request a copy of the Academy’s RPL/RCC (Recognition) Evidence Guide, the Portfolio Assessment Application Form & the Portfolio Assessment Fee Schedule Payment form. RPL or RCC can ONLY be applied for before enrolment or at the time of enrolling. Applications received after this time will not be considered.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Fees

To apply for any RPL, a once off application fee of $100 applies in total (regardless of the number of units applied for RPL) In addition to your application fee, an additional $50 per unit is payable. Please note, no discount is applied to full course costs.


National recognition is a process that involves gaining credit transfers for competencies/course modules studied with another training organization. Students who have successfully completed any of the competencies/modules covered in either Certificate IV in Screen and Media or Diploma of Screen and Media (Specialist Makeup Services) may be eligible for credit transfer.

The Academy of Makeup will recognize Qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by another Australian Registered Training Organisation. No discount to course fees is offered for recognition of prior learning or current competencies.

Students under 18 years of age must include a copy of their most recent school report/academic transcript with their enrolment application. Students under 18 years of age may also be required to attend a preliminary interview to assess their eligibility for the course. All students applying for a VET Student Loan will be required to meet eligibility and suitability requirements. The Academy reserves the right to refuse entry, exclude and/or expel students from the course who fail to meet minimum course requirements, based on their suitability of the course, any conflict of interest that may occur and if they fail to meet the age requirement. In addition, students may be required to attend a pre-enrolment interview to assess their suitability to the course.

The Academy recognizes that there may be cases where students are faced with certain barriers to education and training. For example, some students may have special requirements relating to language, literacy or numeracy. The Academy will use its reasonable endeavors to offer students a solution, or form of assistance, which helps to satisfy the student’s special requirements. Students are asked to contact the Academy of Makeup, if they have special requirements in these circumstances. At the start of each course students will undertake a language, literacy and numeracy test to assist with the assessment of their special requirements. Your enrolment form also requests information relating to language and comprehension.

The Academy of Makeup will use its best endeavors to provide assistance to students with learning difficulties or specific needs. However, the Academy will not be liable (nor will there be any refund of course fees) if students or guardians fail to disclose information about a students learning (or potential) learning difficulties or specific needs.

The enrolled student has a duty to disclose in writing to the Academy of Makeup any illness, disability and/or learning difficulty that may affect their academic performance.

If a pre-existing condition is not disclosed, the student may forfeit their right to extra guidance and support.

All students are required to complete the Language Literacy & Numeracy Test via the online link that will be sent to them after submitted their Enrolment Form.
