Art and design courses will often ask to see a portfolio (or a showreel for film courses) of your work. The aim of this is to show your skill, enthusiasm and also your ability to carry out a project from concept to finished piece.
How does one put together a good portfolio? The most important initial step is to thoroughly research the advice for each course at each institution you are applying for- they will all have different advice and guidance and they will all be looking for different things. You must tailor each portfolio to the each course.
Below we have collected together some advice and guidance from our members and independent sources. Be sure you research your course well in advance so you know what will be expected of you.
