    Scholarship application requirements: Digital creative portfolio (Design)

    To apply for an RMIT Vietnam scholarship within the Centre of Communication & Design (CoCD), you must submit  a ‘Digital Creative Portfolio’. This gives you an added opportunity to demonstrate your skills, interests and strengths in producing creative, design or digital media content .  

    The Digital Creative Portfolio allows students who are creatively excellent but may not have achieved equally high standards or grades in their traditional academic school subjects to present their creative work.

    Your Digital Creative Portfolio should be carefully assembled and focused in such a way as to tell us who you are and to demonstrate – through your work - your passion for creativity and design. It should not be a collection of unrelated works and the emphasis should be on quality rather than quantity.

    Your Digital Creative Portfolio may include some of the following:

    • Graphic design or photographic work;
    • Video, animation or motion work;
    • Sound design, remixes, or music composition;
    • Interactive work (ie. websites, apps, games);
    • Non-digital work including drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations;
    • Any other example of your chosen creative works.

    Most importantly, your Digital Creative Portfolio should be structured and/or narrated to explain exactly the work you are showing. It should not be left to the viewer to try and work out what the video contains. Ultimately, your video should portray you, and your creative accomplishments, as worthy of an RMIT scholarship for creative excellence.

    Format: The Digital Creative Portfolio (Design) will consist of a video file of no more than five minutes in duration. It must contain a title page (Digital Creative Portfolio) and clearly include your name.

    Submission: Your Digital Creative Portfolio should be uploaded to an online video platform (such as Vimeo, YouTube) or any other online repository (GoogleDrive, etc) and a link provided. Submissions will not be accepted in any other way than online.

    Note: All portfolio work must be original and created by the candidate.

    Before applying, we recommend reading the scholarship application guidelines on the How to apply for a scholarship page and read the Scholarship terms and conditions or leave your contact information below.
