A portfolio provides some indication of your ability in design and allows us to assess your creative potential.

We wish to see at least 3 examples of your own creative work, completed within the last 3 years.

Portfolios are as varied as the students they represent; however, usually a portfolio would contain examples of drawings in a variety of media. Photographs of 3D pieces you have made such as jewellery, sculpture, packaging, card design, furniture products, interior design or sketchbooks can be included. We are happy to accept portfolios in an electronic format, such as a CD-ROM or website.
