Thank you for your application to the University of East London. As part of the admissions process you are required to submit a digital portfolio of your work.

How should I send my portfolio?

You should upload a portfolio of your current work to support your application.

Your portfolio must be a single PDF file or file containing a link to an online site. 

Please note: We might not be able to consider your portfolio if it is not sent in one of the formats stated above.

When should I send my portfolio?

You should send in the portfolio within 2 weeks from the date requested.

If you cannot meet this deadline please contact us, otherwise your application may be withdrawn if we do not receive a response.

What do you expect to see in a portfolio?

The portfolio is a very important part of the application process. It should reflect broad examples of your work. This will be used as evidence of your creative ability and potential.

Your portfolio might include paintings, drawings, sketches, personal sketchbook work, design and photographic work, digital work, sculptures and models, moving image or animation, comic strips or work in progress. These are just examples. Observational drawing and original artwork are of more interest than copies of famous characters!

We do like to see the creative and planning processes that have contributed to your work, not just the final pieces.

We also like to see some work that reflects your own personal interests, i.e. work that you might have undertaken in your own time.

You will be expected to display care and thought in the way that your portfolio is presented. We want to see your passion for your work and you’re expected to present the portfolio in a positive and interesting manner.
