Part of the entry requirement for our Foundation Degree Arts programmes is that applicants provide a digital portfolio. This is a selection of your work that we can look at online, ahead of inviting you for interview. The idea is it demonstrates your interest, your current knowledge and ability in the subject area and sometimes it can show your creativity.
There is no single layout or correct portfolio to aim for, it’s about showing us who you are and your passion for the subject, even if you haven’t studied it before.
Here are some top tips to guide you through the process:
You could choose to present your works and experiments in a portrait or landscape format, but it’s preferrable if you keep the format consistent throughout. When photographing your work or sketchbooks, try and do so in good natural light and against a plain background.
Try not to worry if you cannot provide a portfolio - the College will provide a practical exercise that can be completed remotely to assess mental agility and dexterity and suitability for the programme.
