I am about to start a masters in fashion and textiles at RMIT. I am originally from Sydney.

hello =) Well I live in Australia, and my sis has a friend whos currently at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) and shes studying Fashion and Design there, she got into RMIT by submitting her portfolio of work she did during her VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education, what you do in year 12) and they accepted her!
My sister's friend is extremely dedicated to her course and I think shes fantastic I think to get into RMIT fashion and design course you have impress the panel of judges quite a bit and do well in your interview. I think the link below will give you a bit of information on how the procedure of selection worked in 2007

I'm no expert in this but I hope that helped!

Sorry, because I know you were asking about Australia, but I thought I'd share, if you're willing to possibly go to New Zealand (which if you're inspired by various nature and climates, I find NZ a very inspirational place to work) I looked and was very interested in Whitecliffe College of Arts And Design (http://www.whitecliffe.ac.nz). I looked at it for graphic design and film, but their fashion design program there sounds very good as well.

But of course, while they're close together and sometimes grouped together, NZ and AU are two different places, so if you're really set on AU, then I apologize cause my post won't help you any! :p

The Australian institute which producers the highest amount of Designers with measurable success is the Sydney Institute of TAFE - formerly East Sydney TAFE. As mentioned above places like RMIT in Melbourne and SIT have fierce competition from local students with a limited number of students being accepted into the courses. You need a good portfolio, a keen eye and more.

Places which are a little less competitive to get into are Private Institutes such as: The Whitehouse Institute of Design in Melbourne & Sydney and The Melbourne School of Fashion. The fees are very high for these courses but nevertheless the education is still good.

UTS is a very good university in general,

but its Design department and the students that have graduated have an excellent reputation.

Many Australian designers (off the top of my head); Tina Kalivas, Akira Isogawa and Michelle Robinson are alumini, and it seems that most graduates end up involved in fashion in some way

why is the UAI at UTS so high? 96?!from what i gather from their site they don't even look at folios of local students...? really weird (and discouraging) admissions process.. am i missing something

RMIT doesn't set a standard UAI/TER score.. they base it on the design exercise + folio, right?
