The Vega Entrance Challenge is completed by all applicants for any one of the qualifications offered by Vega. It is not a test or exam, and answers cannot be "right" or "wrong" we hope that our candidates have fun doing it! What it does do, in conjunction with their documentation, interview and portfolio, is help to assess whether they are applying for the right course, or whether they should rather be redirected to an alternative course.
Once the Challenge has been assessed, along with the documents and application form, the candidate will be called in for a personal interview. If applying for the BA or BA Honours in Creative Brand Communications, Higher Certificate in Photography or Advanced Certificate in Professional Photography applicants will be expected to bring along a portfolio of work. This can be school artwork or photographs of large work anything that will give us some idea of the capabilities and area/s of interest.
If the applicant doesn't have work examples, but still wishes to apply for one of the creative programmes, Vega can assist in setting creative challenges for the applicant to submit.
Should the candidate apply for the BA Degree in Brand Building & Management, they must meet the Maths/Maths Literacy requirement. Candidates may also be required to score an intermediate achievement level in the National Benchmark Test (NBT) AQL assessment should they not have met the automatic admission criteria based on their final Maths/Maths Literacy result.
NB: Admission for any degree programme requires a National Senior Certificate with admission into a Bachelors Degree, or a Senior Certificate with endorsement, or an equivalent qualification.
