Portfolio Preparation

If you're interested in applying for a full-time creative course, it's important to have a well presented and varied portfolio.

Due to the uncertainty of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, we are currently reviewing the situation for Saturday courses for the Autumn term 2020. Please get in touch if you would like to be added to our mailing list.

Course Details

For students in the final years of school or college (School Years 11-13 or equivalent if home-schooled), who are considering applying for a full-time creative course, the Portfolio Preparation course can offer the opportunity to experience what it is like to study at an award-winning art university specialising in art, design, media and performance.

A well presented and varied portfolio is essential for any prospective art student and this course is designed to give you guidance and support from experienced staff on the development of their work, presentation methods and communication skills.

You will be working in our amazing studio spaces that have been home to our award-winning graduates, using tools and equipment that the creative industries rely on and become a part of our creative community.

Your creative journey with AUB doesn't have to stop at Saturday Art School either; we offer a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design as well as a range of creative degree courses - and you'll already know your way around campus.


This course costs £160 for an eight-week term.

We do offer reduced fees to parents or guardians who receive specific income-related benefits or are in receipt of free school meals for their child (and have an official document showing this).

You will need to contact us prior to enrolling online for more information on the qualifying benefits for a reduced fee place. If you qualify, you will still have to complete the online enrolment form but payment will be taken over the telephone.
