Calling international students! Are you applying for a creative course? Need guidance to create a portfolio?

University of Portsmouth has students studying from more than 150 countries around the world.  No matter where you come from, you can find information on how to apply to join us here.

Are you thinking of studying a creative subject?  Do you need to provide a portfolio?

As part of your application to the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries, we may ask you to provide a digital portfolio to help us ascertain your suitability for the course.  This supplementary evidence ensures we can consider all applicants regardless of academic grades and subject profiles.

In the portfolio, we are looking for a range of work that clearly demonstrates your enthusiasm, skill level and development.

The work in your portfolio can be produced as part of a formal course of study or class, or anything you have produced independently.  We do not necessarily expect to see finished pieces, but all work should be well presented.  We would like to see a selection of recent work and different projects, and/or images from your sketchbooks to show developmental work.

Do you need help to put together your portfolio?

Visit Portfolio Guides, where you can find information for every creative undergraduate and postgraduate course that requires a portfolio, with full instructions on how to proceed.

For general queries, international students follow the same process as UK students, but there are a few extra things you’ll need to know.  Applicants from some countries may have to meet individual requirements – to see what these are, visit your country page.
