At interview, we’re looking for applicants with motivation and who have shown commitment to their previous studies. Your academic performance is also very important. A-level candidates are very often recommended to possess a Foundation Diploma in addition to their A-level grades. This is because this course requires a high degree of skill, technical knowledge and conceptual understanding that cannot always be demonstrated through A-level study.

Your portfolio

Your portfolio should show evidence of life and observational drawing, typographic design, photography, text and image. We like to see both finished work that shows attention to detail and good craft skills and work sheets that show an understanding of problem solving methodologies.

You can download our portfolio guidelines for BA (Hons) Graphic Design to help you prepare.
