Digital portfolio or portfolio - what's the difference?

The difference between the two types of portfolio is whether you submit your work online, or whether you present it to us in person.

We refer to work submitted online as a digital portfolio. For some courses we ask all applicants who meet the entry requirements to submit one. We use this either to assess you for entry to the course, or to shortlist for interview.

If you are invited to an interview, you will be required to bring along a physical copy of your portfolio. The purpose of this is to talk through your work with our academic team to discuss your progress as a designer, and to discuss your influences and aspirations.

You can find out whether you'll be required to submit a digital creative portfolio online, or bring along a portfolio to an interview by looking at the entry requirements of your course of interest.
