For the majority of our courses, we’ll invite you to attend an interview and ask you to bring a portfolio with you as part of the application process.

Portfolios should show examples of your work – both finished and work in progress – that demonstrate your interests and skills.

We have created specific portfolio guidelines for each of our courses. You can take a look at these below.


*Please note the Foundation portfolio guidelines apply for both January (intensive) and September start dates.

Undergraduate degrees (BA Hons)


Applicant Days

Applicants to BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design, BA (Hons) Art and Design History, BA (Hons) Creative Events Management, and BA (Hons) Creative Writing and BA (Hons) Interior Architecture will be assessed on their application and qualifications. If you meet, or could meet our entry requirements, we’ll make an offer and invite you to attend one of our Applicant Days. These give you the opportunity to find out more about the course, meet staff, students and have a tour of the AUB campus.

Depending on your qualifications we may request a portfolio or an example of your work before we make a decision about your application. If you apply for entry to the second or third year of the course we’ll invite you to attend an interview or submit a portfolio or examples of your work.
