Entry requirements

All applications to courses are assessed against the course entry requirements and criteria. We require a portfolio of visual work to provide evidence of practical and visual ability appropriate to the course you are applying for. Applicants are considered on a case by case basis and by their ability and readiness for university study. If you are an international student our minimum language requirement is an IELTS score of 5.5 and we would advise you to continue to develop your language skills to this level and above.

Your interview

If you meet the standard entry requirements you will be invited to attend an interview. Admissions will advise you of your interview date and time via MyApplication.

Your interview will last around 20 minutes and will be your opportunity to present your portfolio and to discuss your ideas, interests and aspirations with a course tutor. We will talk about your influences in arts, design media and performance, your portfolio and other cultural interests such as cinema, theatre or literature. Discussion will largely revolve around your portfolio of creative work. It is important that you bring a broad range of work so that we can assess your potential. We would advise that you seek guidance about the content of your portfolio from your art, design and media teacher(s).
