Required Documents

Letter of Intent

Your 250+ word Letter of Intent will help us find out what you want to learn and whether our qualifications will cater to what you want to do and where you want to go. You might think we're looking for the perfect student, but we actually want to find you the perfect tertiary!

Please include in your Letter of Intent: 

  • Why you are interested in the qualification you applied for. 
  • What is your motivation for studying this qualification? 
  • Why did you choose MDS as your preferred tertiary provider? 
  • What your future career goals are. 
  • Your relevant training and experience (if any) 

First impressions count, so make sure to spellcheck!  

Valid Identification

We need a certified copy that proves your age, citizenship and residency. Typically this will be your Passport or Birth Certificate. Driver's licences won't cut it - sorry!

Documents can be certified by a Justice of the Peace (JP), or a Media Design School staff member. JP's can be found HERE.

If you're not in the position to get your documents certified right now, you can send through an uncertified copy of your documents and your application will still be reviewed. Once your application has been approved, you will need to supply a certified copy before you can start class.  Not applicable for international students.
