To support your application you will be asked to submit, or bring in, a portfolio. Your portfolio is an opportunity to show us who you are, your creative ability and your potential.

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

Portfolio submission deadlines

The guidance below sets out our typical requirements, but in light of the current circumstances please be aware that you can submit: GCSE work, and work from last year; work in progress such as sketches of ideas; photos of your work; fewer examples of your work than we have recommended in the guidance.

For those applying to our MA Visual Communication, please submit your portfolio within two weeks of making an application, following the guidance outlined below.

We will make a decision on your application as soon as possible when we receive your portfolio. If you have any questions or concerns, please do contact us.

We look forward to seeing your work.
