Portfolio Requirement

If course leaders have further questions on your portfolio, or want to know a bit more about the background to your visual projects, you may be invited for a short interview. These interviews will be an opportunity for you to talk about your creative practice and research interests and, beyond these topics, do not require any further preparation or paperwork.
