Points to remember

Your portfolio should show your processes, your ideas, the way you think and the areas that you are interested in. It needs to speak for you.

A well presented portfolio shows that you care about your work and that you are serious about your application.

At your interview it is important that the course/s you have chosen feel right for you. The interview is a great opportunity to ask questions, view the facilities, studios  and workshops.

Remember that they are looking at your potential and  your aspirations. Use your portfolio as a prompt to talk about the processes, materials and projects that you enjoy.
