If you're applying for one of our practice-based undergraduate Art and Design courses, your creative portfolio and interview will be a key part of your application. Below is lots of useful guidance on creative portfolio development and interview advice.
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 creative portfolio. Digital creative portfolios are mainly for applicants who are based outside of the UK, however 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 at the University.
For other courses, you'll be required to bring along a physical copy of your creative portfolio to an interview. 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.
For some of our undergraduate Art and Design courses we'll ask you to submit a digital creative portfolio. If this is the case, we'll be in touch by email after you've submitted your application. We'll include full details of what work to include and how to upload it to our website.
Once we have received your application we may invite you to attend an interview, here at the University.
We will include course-specific interview and creative portfolio advice in your interview pack, but you can also download it here.
