To apply to the Vancouver Film School, a prospective candidate must complete and submit the online application form and provide the required additional information. This includes the answers to a questionnaire, proof of age, proof of high school graduation, two recommendation letters, transcripts from previous schools and a financial plan. Candidates must also meet the specific program requirements in addition to the English language requirements.
The questionnaire part of the online application form requires candidates to provide information about their interests and goals in relation to the program to which they are applying.
In addition to the application form and questionnaire, the college requires proof that the applicant is either more than 19 years old or has graduated from high school. The two references that are required must attest to the applicant's abilities, but they cannot be written by a member of the applicant's family. Transcripts from all schools the applicant attended in the previous 5 years are also required as is a detailed financial plan. This must demonstrate that the applicant can cover the cost of tuition fees and living expenses while studying at VFS.
VFS accepts applications from Canadian, United States and international students, although the process for lodging an application and the supporting information and documents that are required is the same.
