English Test
All Media Makeup courses are taught in English and therefore you are required to demonstrate English proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing by completion of an English language test. If English is not your first language then you must do either IELTS (International English Language Test System) or TOEFL. The minimum English language entry requirement for our programs is IELTS 5.5 (overall band score). Band score of each component is not less than 5.0. The IELTS/TOEFL test must be the Academic version. If your English language proficiency does not yet meet the standard, Media Makeup will provide guidance in securing the necessary English training for your studies. The final decision on acceptance of any applicant will be based on an interview with Media Makeup.

Education Documents
Participants who are not able to attend the academy for an interview should submit a portfolio by mail or via email comprising: Drawings, education documents and any other relevant industry experience evidence.

It may be required, in circumstances where there is some uncertainty of the authenticity of the original or certified copy of the document, that Media Makeup personnel will contact the institution, person or agency or organisation that has signed and/or produced the document to confirm its authenticity and or legitimacy. If this were deemed necessary the Media Makeup appointed personnel will obtain consent from the applicant prior to Media Makeup contacting the relevant institution, person or agency. This request will be documented in writing. If the applicant objects to the document being authenticated then Media Makeup will not recognise the document.
