Portfolio Guidance

Jewellery portfolio guidance banner 710x300

To support your application you will be asked to submit a portfolio. It is an opportunity to show us who you are, your artistic ability and your potential.

This page provides a detailed insight into how to submit the best possible portfolio for your course.

Portfolio submission deadlines

We understand that schools and colleges are currently closed to many students, so you may not have full access to the materials you would like to include within your portfolio. Please do contact your school/college in the first instance to discuss access arrangements, but if there is a delay we would like to reassure you that you still have time to submit your portfolio to us. We do require your portfolio to be able to make a decision on your application, so if you have applied by 29 January we encourage you to submit your portfolio by 12 March where possible.

If you have applied after 29 January, we would ask you to submit your portfolio within six weeks of making an application. We will make a decision on your application as soon as possible when we receive your portfolio.

If you are unable to submit a portfolio at all due to the current circumstances, please contact us to discuss your options.

We look forward to seeing your work.

Please note that if you are applying to the following courses you will not need to submit a portfolio:

  • BA (Hons) Horology
  • BSc (Hons) Gemmology and Jewellery Studies

Select a course from the list below for specific guidance, but if you’re struggling with ideas of what to include or how to structure it take a look at the following guidance.
