WHY DOES THE INTERVIEW REQUIRE A PORTFOLIO?.>

The portfolio is the best way for you to demonstrate your current art interests to a audience. It provides the interviewers with a clear understanding of the way you work, how you use materials and helps us assess your suitability for the Fine Art course .

WHAT IS A PORTFOLIO?.> 

A art portfolio is a collection of creative documents, which are collated together. They act as a visual reference to  highlight your creative journey.

WHAT IF I HAVE DIGITAL WORK SUCH AS FILM, ANIMATION or VIDEO?

If you have digital work which you would like to include, we would suggest transferring any files onto a USB and bringing this with you. During the interview process there will be the opportunity to show these works via a monitor.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE PORTFOLIO AT INTERVIEW?.> 

As part of the interview process you will be asked to present and discuss your portfolio to a small panel of individuals. This will be part of a longer interview process which will include other elements such as a tour of the School of Art.

HOW DO I PRESENT MY PORTFOLIO?.>

But we suggest:

> Keep it simple and organised.

Be practical - what you can carry. 

> Just bring your best work.

> 1 or 2 Small 3-D works are fine.

> Start and end with strong work.
