Recommended HSC Syllabuses
To get the most out of your studies at AIT, we highly recommend that applicants take on a combination of the following syllabuses in HSC which are related to the areas of study. Below are some recommendations:
- Information Processing & Technology (IPT)
- Design & Technology
Students could get a head start with D&T subjects which will enhance their understanding of the digital production process primarily taught in our digital media courses.
- Visual Arts
It is recommended (though not necessary) that students possess artistic skills or have a foundation of traditional art skills (such as sketching, painting and drawing) prior to commencing our digital media courses as they play a vital role in becoming a creative professional.
- Software Design & Development
Students are introduced to the different programming languages used in the software development industry. This is beneficial for students looking to take up the Diploma of IT (Software Development).
